I want to catch beauty that originally exist in the world, its such as the textures, motions. and memory. These things must be change and lost. All sensation, all emotion, all lovers, we hope to cherish these things forever, but disappeared without our noticing in no time at all.

Through Art (“Geijutsu”), I pursuit the appetite for the truth.
Why must I be here? What are we clinging to? In this world where everything will go and be lost, What kind of meaning that has?
Art, its only way to believe there is give us the answer in.
Because my Art pieces based on the appetite to seek the truth in affirming the Existence of the world.

“We have art in order not to die of the truth.” Friedrich Nietzsche
