Artist’s Statement

Returning to a simple life, and to the simplest state of creation, with a pen and a piece of paper, in black and white, it was only left with tactile sensation of human being.

A geometric world that symbolizes both a city and the modern civilization, and a landscape that symbolizes the nature, each with own mode of thinking, they are showing their distinctive characteristics in the axis of time. By being perceived, they intend to restore the ability of sensing the world which has been lost in the social division of labor; and also to maintain a balance in between of natural and social characters.
