Thank you for visiting my website and allowing me to talk about my work. Iíve been making art for 40 years, and each series is different from another, but not.

Iíve made installations, prints, paintings, sculpture, and public works. Iíve been influenced by the different places where Iíve lived or visited, and by becoming a Zen priest, but it all goes back to a moment in childhood which crystallized my ongoing theme.

I was born in Northern Japan ó snow country. As a child I was fascinated by the thin ice which formed on a puddle of water. Iíd pick up the ice, so shiny and beautiful, reflecting the sunlight, but, in a moment, it was gone. It had melted in my hand.

I liked that transient, ever-changing world and it has always been what Iíve wanted to express. The word ďpermanentĒ is unrealistic. Thereís no such thing. I want to melt an irrational concept.

Iíve worked in wood, concrete, rope, bronze, stone, canvas, paper, pencil and paint, but always, somewhere, deeply in my mind, is the fleeting sparkle of a thin sheet of ice.
