Statement:

My profession being a veterinarian, I am missioned to heal people by treating their pets. I aim, as my vocational quest to future healthcare, to creating “therapeutic” works of art from “celluar” views which help the veiwers experience their natural healing potential enhanced.
Our world is the Only One Planet Earth. The Spaceship Earth in itself, with all the lives and things its crew, is indeed the Gaia, the whole single maternal life. Therefore, Individual life-forms, humans and others, respectively are the cells which are composing our world as the one living body. This is how the world appears to me, my unfettered perception to which I have come to reach gradually but steadily through my long veterinarian practice.
Letting the each and every cell, organic or inorganic, sparkle, shine radiantly with their respective properties fully activated! Then, we will gain and enjoy the whole beautiful world in her every components in a perfect harmony of beauty.
I am trying to express the whole world as one life by creating works which enable a viewer to experience them and become aware of his/her existence and which live and wither, as if they were lifeforms, while interacting with the natural environment.

The cutting edge art shows the world after 200 years.
That’s why art is innovative and we can see the unexplainable world before prove them theoretically. I’ll show you that there are no “Death” and “Comparison” in the world.
