私たち人間の持つ、不可視の感覚を可視化するための試みとして、私は作品の中で鑑賞者に問いかけます。作品を視ることで、 鑑賞者が傍観者でありながらも同時に当事者として、作品世界のなかに入り込み、自らの原点を探す旅になればと願っています。

The main theme in my art practice is the boundary line between the real world and imaginary worlds.

I work with different kinds of media such as paintings, prints, ready-made objects, texts and installations

.In addition, I often work with children to make artworks.

I am especially concerned with creating “narrative” in my work. This “narrative” operates like “a veil”

separating artworks from the artist.

By using this framework, the real world becomes fiction and imaginary world becomes non-fiction.

The viewer is invited to the boundary line, navigating between the real world and the imaginary world.

This artistic approach is inspired by children’s fantasy world and similar to the make-believe of

children’s play. Children act free when they play and routinely come and go between these boundaries.

By entering into the work’s realm, the viewer is not merely a witness but also a participant.

I hope this experience becomes a journey for the viewers to find their own origin.
