(Tokushima JAPAN, 1980)
Started photography at the age of 17. Since 2011, I have been working with bromoil process. I have participated in Art Gent in Belgium, Art Expo in NYC, and "Tomonoura de Art" in Hiroshima. My solo exhibitions include "Verse of Silence" (2013), "When the forest of antics sleep" (2017), and "The world stands in the interval of reality and fantasy" (2020). The theme that is always in my mind is "the interval between two contrary things. I am peeking at the world in a place that belongs to neither. And I hope that this is the kind of expression that pulls the viewer away from the real world little by little. I currently lives and works in Tokyo. In recent years, I have been conducting workshop on bromoil process.
The forest of Clownishness
What is inner core the smiles that people make unnaturally. What will the repeated sadness destroy. This is a very simple and complicate journey of the heart. People's memories are vague, and the truth is incredibly hazy and hard to grasp. Also, not all things are told in detail. The boundaries are clearly recognizable from a distance, but the closer you get to them, the more they ambiguous and blend together. The days of living in reality and the world we see in one's inner thoughts. A forest that envelops indelible loneliness. What I see is the ambiguous scenery. And I'm just describing it.
