Very expressive and dramatic figures in human nothingness
Through sculpting, I try to express some thoughts about the intertwining, about the naturalness of a circular cycle.. To put it simply, we are born to die, and dying is the beginning of a new birth.. In that circle, everything flows through some fractures, fissures of life’s flows.. I would I wanted to somehow capture and transform into sculptures with as open forms as possible. It seems to me that terracotta, with its naturalness, is closer to those efforts. . My thoughts on the connection between birth and death are the result of the influence of my birthplace in Japan, where I lived until I was fifteen. I watched as completely white and silent winters, under whose cover all life would die, alternated with distinctly green and vibrant summers when everything flourished. Those shifts made me see life and death as two faces, two forms of the same natural event.
