Artist Statement

I have worked on as the broadcasting writer and director for about thirty long years in Tokyo JAPAN.In the course of the years, I have been interested in Japanfs original and traditional color that is an UKIYOE print, paper made by Japanese original technique = WASHI, and Japanfs own design gMONYOUh= pattern.
I think that MONYOU is the best cultural ambassador. Because MONYOU developed while coming and going many times between the Orient and the Occident . While it was long times, MONYOU was only handling as a part of the decoration art. However, they are different. I think that MONYOU may be formed as a new concept in a field of the contemporary art. Then, I tried to make own cutting artworks 2003. I began an act to dye Japanese traditional paper gWASHIh in various original colors. To draw an original pattern on the WASHI and cut it. To layer the WASHI which cut the MONYOU on several levels. When I dye a WASHI, I image a cloud. It may be skies or may be the ore. When I design the MONYOU, I am conscious of Japonisme. When I cut the WASHI, I centralize all nerve in the point of a sword of the design cutter.
By the way, I may let MONYOU and Japanese Calligraphy fuse. It is a concept with Japanfs original taste that nobody does.
It is the work that is very interesting for me even if take anything. I need various technique and much time for production. However, time of all gives me imaginary joy. I believe my intuitive power and produce it.
Finally, letfs introduce art supplies using. I use Japanese traditional materials. For example, gold and silver leaf, gold and silver sands, mica, Indian-ink = SUMI, chalk = GOHUN, natural mineral pigments = IWAENOGU and water ink.
Please enjoy my artworks.
