Title: the sublime onanism
Size: Variable
Media: Collage installation with printed watercolour drawings and cardboard cutouts
Video:

My works examine fantasy, unrequited love, memories, abandonment, daydreams and fears; shining a light into the darkness of the mental landscape of the human experience. Thus it includes visual interpretations of personal fetishistic experiences and desire, a therapeutic use of the creative process to ease physical and emotional deficiency and encouraging us to explore and question our own mind. Thus my works can be seen playful, melancholy, and at times shocking, I am attempting de-sensitize viewers to the everyday violence of images and reflect the fictions of memory and identity that we construct as we increasingly slip between screen worlds and the real world.

A worls where two worlds warped in on each other depicting a stressful busy city. If you look at the shape of the sky, it reminds you to take a bath hence the shape.

I am using the familiar visual language of the internet memes which represent post-internet generation captivated by social media, computer/online games and Japanese manga/animation to create immersive narratives that reveal the anxieties and desires of contemporary life.

Title: A Small Town
Size: 37 x 49 x 0.5 cm
Media: Floss silk, Tulle, Cotton yarn, Wool yarn, Acrylic yarn, Embroidery thread etc.
Video:

I imagined a small peacefull town in which warm people live. There are various small shops and very small parks here and there. In the town, there is also a variety of streets such as a slope, a narrow path, a three-forked street, four corners and a blind alley. I expressed such a town abstractly. And I devised that I expressed a feeling of warm peaceful air by using floss silk.

Title: The Early Summer Breeze
Size: 67 x 81 cm
Media: Floss silk, Tulle, Embroidery thread and Organdie ribbon
Video:

When it is early summer, a refreshing breeze blows through the young leaves of trees and fresh grass. And then the green scent of greenery is carried on the breeze. Sometimes the breeze brings the sweet scent of flowers. I got inspiration from such an early summer breeze. In this abstract work, the white cross curved lines of floss silk and curved shapes of tulle show the state that the breeze blows to. The colours show young leaves and flowers, and the colours also show their scents of my image.

繰り返される日々、毎日生まれゆく今日。
気がつけば、明日は今日になり、昨日になる。
そうして、いつのひか人は死んでゆく。
いちにちを、定点撮影で映像におさめました。リピート再生することで、「いちにち」が繰り返され、「まいにち」になります。
「まいにち」が繰り返されることで、日々は過去になり、生あるものは死に向かうのです。

One day, was housed in the video in a fixed point shooting.
By repeat playback, "one day" is repeated, it will be "every day".
By "every day" is repeated, every day is made in the past, raw some are we going to die.

We frequently see news in everyday life. The back circumstances that TV does not report, what news comes under political pressure, an audience rating is thought about to the first and report the excessive news,,, I don’t know whether these are true or not. I don’t know what is what. I can’t help thinking how reliable the news is. I think that a person who think such thought is not only me.

I ended up the idea that making arts is not what I want to express but what I can express after all. The concept of the work is vestiges of simple activities like cutting, ripping, etc. rather than figuration. I simply devote myself to following whatever my hands and fingers are doing so that all those simple activities could finally combine with my memories or experiences piled in me so far. This is my way of going back to the source.

Pieces of time, pieces of memories, pieces of places,etc. I imaginarily put them together or peel them off like playing with pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. In imagination, they would become a part of something evoking some innermost images or something themselves. I guess everyone would live piecing together a hodgepodge of them.

It is expressed a scene in the dream of one day. There is no gravity, no concept of time and space… it is a wonderful boundless world we could come anytime.

No matter how hard you try to stick two things together without making Sukima,Sukima will be formed inevitably. Actually, the harder you try to fill Sukima,the more Sukima you make. Sukima, a gap, is considered as a wasted space, but I have a different view of it. Sukima is made up of a relative relation of two objects on either side of it, and it is there to accentuate those two objects. Without objects there is no Sukima, and vice versa. For that reason, I would say that Sukima does bring two objects into existence. In this work, I will show you Sukima itself cut out from objects. While you put two Sukimas side by side,there will be another Sukima generated between them, and so on so forth. As Sukima grows in numbers, it could be impossible to tell where Sukima starts and where it ends. Or it may no longer be Sukima? I would like to come to understand what we can feel inside such a seemingly empty space like Sukima.

The exhibition at a facility for children to play in. The theme is colors and shapes; the variety of abstract forms I created could let people free from stereotypes and think or imagine freely, so not only children but also adults could adequately enjoy them.
