Artist’s Statement

 

I attempt to activate and uplift human souls through transformed art elements including Japanese characters and symbolism. Past and Present, East and West meet to create a contemporary dialog conveying my passion for life and my eternal good wishes for the people of the world.

 

My current works are focused on Japanese Character Paintings, Fusion Ikebana Sculptures and Installations and Photography.

 

The Japanese Character Paintings are an abstract expressionistic style based on Japanese characters. The characters are modified to express their meanings, which coordinate with the paintings’ titles.

 

The Fusion Ikebana Sculptures and Installations are a contemporary extension of the traditional Japanese flower arrangement and reflect an abstract expressionistic style utilizing organic and manmade materials to convey my positive intent to the viewer.

 

Photography is my most recent passionate interest to capture and record every kind of art I see in life, whether it already exists naturally or is created through an arrangement.

 

On this site there are a total of six galleries. Each gallery has its own lobby with descriptions of each series and image. I hope you’ll enjoy them.
