Be myself in scenery ...

When I’m painting and looking at scenery and nature, I feel the strength of existence. When I’m drawing, feeling the colour of beauty and the profoundness of air, I feel as if my world is being greatly improved and enhanced by the natural world. I believe that nature is essential for humans to have a beautiful mind. I always approach the natural world with a sincere and great respect. Through my work, I have learnt to communicate with objects, love them deeply, and change myself through contemplation of them. The two years I spent painting in Spain have had a profound impact on the work I have produced in Japan. I am more sensitive to the beauty of the unique moist and soft light of Japan's wood culture. I treasure the warmth of the landscape and my mind finds peace in contemplating it. I want my works to generate this feeling of peace in those who view it. I would like them to feel as if they are actually in the landscape.
