    About the media


    This picture was drown by the technique called “Nihon-ga ( Japanese-style pigment )”.

    Nihon-ga is a water-soluble-pigment.

    But it is different from watercolor.

    Nihon-ga  has a variety of size of pigment.



    I am searching the view of the lowest layer of unconscious( subconscious).

    This trial refers to the model of mind what was suggested by C.G.Jung.

    The model means that a man can link others, if he digs down to “collective unconscious” layer.

    In short, we have the gate to link others in ourselves.

    Rightly, I have to cut off myself, because I leave from my individuality.

    Therefore my artworks do not have items so many. It is to shave off myself, not to get or to brush up my individuality.

    On the other hand, the blank of my picture is not vacancy white.

    It has some cracks and some patterns.

    This device was influenced by “Yuu-gen”( a kind of Japanese aesthetic*).

    By this aesthetic, vacancy white will be the blank with meanings and flames.

     If you find some good old feeling in my artworks, it is just my pleasure.


    *   Please think that to draw in your mind, do not draw anything.

     This is an example that is from famous Hai-ku( Japanese poem).

      It is a technique what makes to feel “It’s a silent place that I can hear the sound”,  by representing “I hear the sound a flog dove”.

    This is absolutely gorgeous! I love the movement of the falls and Salish Lodge looks perfect!


    Laguna Beach is one of my favorite places in the world. This painting really conveys the distinctive intangible quality of a Laguna Beach morning. Beautifully painted - the mood captured elevates the piece. Bravo.
