The human eye can distinguish between tens of millions of colors. Even if we don’t know every individual color’s name, I believe we can actually feel these myriad colors.
For example, even in a small aquarium the space maybe small, but we can feel the many colors that exist in the universe that bring out inspiration and many colorful emotions from within us.
Also, our daily lives are over flowing with these countless colors nd I try to express every single colors by linking each color to an emotion and then drawing a picture.
No matter the place or time, if you look carefully, we can instantly find colors that make our hearts dance.
色に立脚した表現活動を軸に、「色」の有機的な動きを捉えた作品群 『色のすること』や、対話を通し、個人の記憶や意識に潜む「色」を顕在化させる即興描画 ‘In a Flowerscape’ をライフワークとしておこなうなど、多岐にわたる。来年は豊島区にある長さ７７mのウイロードの改修にあたり、壁面と天井前面に公開制作で絵を描く予定である。
