The small buildings and flowers at the center of my work represent my alter ego. The surrounding fields signify the passage of time. Buildings rise on an empty field, only to return to open land once more. By placing my alter ego at the heart of these transformations, I express my own "territory."

Through my art, I aim to give form to the landmarks that exist in the spaces between changing elements

In the lush green mountains, the sounds, smells, and signs that I experience while creating my work make me imagine the lives of creatures burrowed away. Similarly, casual conversations and everyday encounters are filled with small discoveries that move me.

When these imaginings and discoveries blend, a story forms in my mind, bringing many characters to life. I capture their vague images on paper, then shape them with clay, add layers of color, and bake them over and over again.
They emerge into the real world with expressions of sealed intentions, gently curving surfaces, and unchanging colors and textures. Watching them gradually appear before my eyes, after existing only in my mind, fills me with joy and excitement.

I hope you can imagine the continuation of their story from their appearance, as if they are quietly plotting something.
