I am a contemporary artist based in Tokyo.
I’m pursuing a new type of work that incorporates various elements of painting, composition and perspective, with an emphasis on the exploration of time and movement.
My piece leads viewers to question several aspects of the work itself, for example, Is it a painting or photo, static or changing, fiction or reality? When we start to lose our habitual perspective, I think we can connect these questions to further, more important questions about ourselves, where we are or what we are, our own self-understanding and our relationship to the external world.
