he objective of my work is to recreate the
modern versions of decorative arts and
their structures from the Edo Period.
My works are based on the premises
that the paintings on traditional folding
screens, byobu, and traditional sliding
doors, fusuma, primarily serve a decorative
purpose, and that the role of the images
and patterns on the surface, represented
using the déformer method, is to provide a
contrast in order to bring out their decorative
function. I believe that, aside from serving
as a medium of expression for the artist,
paintings can also play a decorative role.
My goal is to create unique images by
reproducing history while at the same time
incorporating modern elements such as
street culture and graffiti into the design.
By examining the historical era in which
decorative arts flourished and their roles in
that historical context, I hope to present the
role of art in the world today as well as the
direct link between the modern world and art.
