Sometimes I feel alone or being different space-time. It is like clouds and smoke that change shape themselves irrelevantly from time we spend or my own space. I put those feelings into the shapes as my works. Now I put into the shape of the feelings of freedom, time and desires which are slipping away from my memories. I think this is important for me to be myself and ones to be themselves.

I suppose that people are unintentionally layering their mental scenery on places and things. And I feel those places and things are empty when they are out of sight. The relevance between "image-bearing state" and "empty state" of places and objects is the axis of my creation.

It doesn't mean my works are just pretty, and have no meaning. What I want to convey is not be able to express in words and sentences. It is something that cannot be expressed in letters, it's confusing and complex strange feelings. In order to correctly convey unclear sense, the vague sensation in myself, that is "invisible" must turn into "visible objects" which everyone can understand. This is what I think art is.
