    When consciousness is laid bare, a beautiful screen is born. The sensations of the body become strokes as they are. The uninhibited and unrestrained freedom clad in dignity is my ideal of what I want to be when I create something, and what I want to be as a person as well. The works on display in the exhibition hall are the very embodiment of these sensations. I create pleasant black and white for the screen in front of me. Even if the size of the canvas or the tools used are different, the feeling is always the same.
    Please take a look at what I value through my paintings.

    The view through the telescope is far away and out of reach.
    Although the same time should be passing by, there is a sense of unreality, as if we are looking at a still picture, or a distant feeling as if we are peering into someone else's scenery.
    That may be because the landscape is "a landscape without me.
    Distant landscapes beyond the many round frames.
    The scenery we have seen someday and the scenery we have yet to see continue to expand countless times as fragments of the world.
