Statement

 

Art statement

 

My art is a manifestation of my experience as a Japanese person living in the West, first in Europe and now in New York. I use the art making process as a platform for exploring and reconciling the differences between my early sensibilities shaped by a childhood in Japan and those absorbed as an adult in Europe and the United States.
