The sky seems to suck you in, and when you look at the sky, you see birds flying freely, and all sorts of things you thought were difficult become unimportant. Let's be more spontaneous and free!"

About the work

"I like to spend my mornings looking at nature, listening to my favorite music, and drinking coffee. It's a natural way of life, with my shoulders relaxed.

I have lived in many places, but I don't think my stance has changed. It is the same when I travel. I travel as I live and enjoy my time in a natural way.

When you put your trust, love, gaze at, and think deeply about something ordinary, that ordinary thing becomes universal. The work is born from drawing out the memories once locked away in the depths of the mind. Landscapes, objects, and people become more interesting to me.

I put the precious thoughts and feelings I have encountered and felt on a sheet of paper."
