after getting aware of the viewpoint of an "empty self," i started in 1999 a series of works using paper...it looks like annual rings of a tree or topographical map or wave, but it isn't. it is absolutely the traces of actions of a person, which is me.
so to speak, i have been mapping the mysterious land between physical and emotional geography. i want to attain something sublime. the entrance of the way is detail. the detail is the key point of nature, and we are part of nature. even though the actions are simple, i do not try to draw / cut mechanical or perfect lines in my work, for subtle natural distortions convey the nuances of human emotions, habits, or biorhythm. for this reason, i take care to make all works by hand.
