Biography

In "one view", the subject is shifted from the phenomenon of existence flickering according to perception, which was dealt with in the Garando series, to a specific space, "an anonymous place where there is existence."
By creating an anonymous and unnameable landscape, I aim to elicit the viewer's memories and create a double image with the painting in front of them.
The work is like co-creating a near-abstract figurative landscape woven with our common deep memories.

The landscape that outlines have been obscured by memory overwriting, the smell and humidity of the air at a certain moment, the light of day, the sky at the moment the sun sets, and so on.
Small fragments of those memories are layered on top of each other like a thin film.

For example, there is a word "twilight" which refers to the time around sunset.
One of the origins of the word is said to be "the state in which it is hard to tell who the person is because it is moderately dark."
This can be said to be a problem of a situation where visibility is poor due to insufficient light source, but I feel that it contains a very poetic nuance.
I don't know what to call something in the shape of a person that the outline has become obscured.
I am working as if I had replaced that with a place.

The works created in that way are composed of limited landscapes in each film itself. They are anonymous landscapes with vague time and form as a whole.
The memories stored in each viewer's mind are suddenly awakened by who sees the landscape. I would like to express the experience in my works.
