Statement

I grew up in an area where people believe in the existence of something invisible and where various gods are worshipped. In each home, both a Buddhist altar, for honoring ancestors, and a Shinto altar, for worshipping gods of nature, can be found.

Whenever folktales or ancient traditions were recounted, I was always conscious of the existence of things which couldn't be seen.

In my works, I make an invisible world manifest by gathering snippets from every day-life experiences and arranging them. The motifs I choose are not necessarily bound by logic.

I select motifs which interest me, incorporating humorous and satirical elements to create scenes of another dimension.
