Statement:

There isn’t supposed to be no modeling, spirit and philosophy for a work. Every time a year is spent, it’s simple.
It has been. When it’s possible to move people deeply, it’s best.
I receive the rudiments in girlhood and Japanese-style painter’s grandfather also am charmed by SUMI ink painting and enter a SUMIink(China ink) painting person. Basic learning of SUMIink and Washi (Japanese paper) is shipped. The production is continued in the motif of It Tree and Mori. I’m traveling to Hokkaido Konsengen’ya independently again in Amami-gunto in 1970 time subtropical zone, receive an impact in the dark cloud about which the power of the nature of the big tree and strong modelling can squeal on a horizon again and am working on “abstraction expression by Sumi ink and Japanese paper”.
I keep an atelier in Japan and Sasayama-shi, Hyogo, challenge a possibility of the phenomenon experiment by “Sumi ink and Japanese paper” and the expression and continue the study at present. The material is developing itself in a work beyond a monochrome ink painting by the material, the Sumi ink and the Japanese paper by which Asia has tradition. It’s done to send no one. It’s spirit of the concrete, but I have carried on production activity, feeling the concrete close. It’s developing in production of monochrome abstraction work, solid and installation. Many works are produced. It’s my mission which had ink and Japanese paper in its hand, and I’d like to leave it in a world and I’m applying myself.
