Statement:

I produce works in a motif with food.
Especially I choice fast food and junk food, in short,
Gyudon, instant noodles and bento meal from convenience stores.
These foods have come into use to try to express today’s situation both critically
and simple but cynically.
My major works are two series ; the Streams of Gyudon/the Streams of Instant Noodles and
Convenience store Bento Meals in a Heap.
The former series embodies the actual situation of the meal of modern people
with falling Gyudon and noodles furiously to stomach of the public without tasting, which
are painted like natural streams.
The latter is  discarded convenience store bento meals piled up in large quantities every day like a heap
and expresses nuance of Japanese Animism like finding god to a grain of rice.
The narrow-minded external eyes that the Japanese has are set on proportional support of the Japanese national flag.
And they are modeled after various food, dishes of all the countries of the world like a circle.
This is Japanize series.
It asks redistribution of wealth that concentration of the wealth to the well off accelerating all over the world.
Cutting a cake into pieces symbolizes the redistribution and express.
This is Let’s eat everyone series.
