Artist Statement

He is trying to obscure the boundary of things. It expresses with various materials, colors, shapes, spaces and effect such as distortion, reflection, moire, blur and so on. It should be possible to reconfirm the existence and relationship of each of the boundaries by making ambiguity of the boundary line. Art for him is a challenge of changing sense of values and how to see a point of view which you’ve had.  My recent works use special effects such as moire and blur on their surface, and cast a doubt on the sense of the flatness.  The latest works explore the influence of the physical sensation upon perception. Looking, touching, entering into, these action may give a subtle sense of incongruity to what you imagined. By partitioning the real world, you may find a space where the new reality is born. These works evoke the confusion and irritation of perception. Moreover, it becomes ambiguous about the relationship between the artwork and the viewer by being a part of the artwork.
