ABOUT ME

The underlying theme of my works is the sound you fell when you see something . When a certain emotion springs up in my mind at an encounter with a certain space at a certain moment, I put a name to that emotion and drop the name into the water of my imagination. My work captures the imaginary movement of the water that is connected to the said space. In my image, the water has no beginning or ending, as it is present in everything and continues to exist forever. The water movements may change, depending on emotions and passions. Nevertheless, I always aspire to create a form that eternally rings out the sound of the name, derived from a certain scene of a certain space, dropping into the eternal water.

My works are often called castings, but they are made of stainless steel plates, cut out and welded together to create forms. Detailed expressions, such as ripples, are done by beating the plate. As a finish, I polish the surfaces of certain faces, including the welded parts. Stainless steel is extremely hard and not at an easy material to handle, but I find it suitable for my themes.
