To draw a picture is to express myself.
The best method to express my sensuous desire is a Picture, and sometimes To Print, or To Draw.
The motif of my most works comes from Nature, vitality created
from nature, hue, shape, air, smell, etc
Not the motif created systematically, but the motif created naturally, is put on my canvas not directly but through the filter of myself.
Etching has many attractive expressions, which is lines or areas
caused by corrosion, or accidental one. Those expressions cannot
be found from the paintings.
A long time ago, Printmaking was reproduce prints, but these days beyond reproduce prints, it becomes the one of arts. I take advantage of etching as one of my art techniques. One fragments from some printed works, or many collaged Japanese rice paper, these became my background paper, and I draw etching prints on it. Therefore, my works become original ones. My strong concept is that beyond the art of printmaking, I treat Printmaking as one of paintings.
My completed works are sometimes a product of shame, and at the same time they are a mirror of myself.
