BIOGRAPHY

Japanese / English

Profile

When I was studying at University, I used to paint landscapes. I gradually switched to abstraction after I started a post graduate course. At first my abstract paintings were derived from landscapes that consisted of horizontal and vertical lines, but since a solo exhibition in 1991, I left the theme of abstract landscapes and started to paint humorous organic motifs.
At my solo exhibition in 2018, I presented some works in which I mixed paint with sand to emphasize the outlines of these motifs. Since 2019, I have used a technique which blends sand and resin directly.
In the morning, I work at a small atelier in my house or a garage near my house. In the afternoon, I work as a lecturer at my atelier “Art and Crafts Atelier MIRAINOKI (future tree).”
