I believe that one of the main characteristics of the Japanese painting technique is that water is also a painting material.
I paint as if I am reliving a meteorological phenomenon, such as the formation of a river by rainfall, or the formation of a landform by a muddy stream carrying sand.
I draw as if I am reliving a meteorological phenomenon.
However, it is nothing more than a lump of paint, so I always pay attention to what kind of landscape I see or am seeing on the screen in front of me as I go along.
My own works are often called abstract paintings, but I try to create landscapes that look more like nature.

As for my own preference, I feel that a detailed and realistic landscape painting has a vividness similar to that of a portrait painting, because I can feel the artist's eyes and breathing in the place where it is painted before I shift my attention to the landscape.
One of the themes of my work is to paint quiet, uncharacteristic landscapes that allow the viewer to feel their own breath and thoughts more acutely, rather than pictures that feel like the artist.

In recent years, I have been working on a series of works called "Human Landscape".
I am interested in "people" themselves, who think various things such as beautiful, scary, nostalgic, lonely, etc. to each viewer even if it is the same landscape, and I came to think that I want to see people through landscapes.
As I proceeded with my work, thinking about people, there were moments when I felt myself as if I were a stranger.
I thought, then, that sticking to my own choice of colors and shapes would not result in vivid landscape paintings, and I have continued to create a series of landscapes of "people" who are both myself and others.
I also believe that there are many parts of the landscape that we usually call and look at that are influenced by human activities.

In my work, I try to make the most of the reflection of light, which is another characteristic of Japanese painting paint.
Since a painting is a solid material, it is difficult to make it change like an actual landscape, but I aim to create a work that gives a different impression like a landscape that changes day by day with the change of light.
