I am interested in shrines and JOMON potteries. long years ago, JOMON potteries were made by acient human
who lives same place where I am. I feel not only storong life enaery but also advanced inteligence to symbolize
eveything. Although they were living in this world thousands years ago, they are not different from us.
When I researched about DOSOJIN(traveler's gardian deitiy), I knew the relations of it and JOMON culture. I came
to be interested in JOMON culture.
DOSOJIN are stone statues of spirits or gods, and standing every crossings and boudarys in my hometown.
I found a stone statue in a crossing, when everybody were sunk in a sad feeling by the Great East Japan Earthquake.
Regardless of the shortage of everything, offerings (such as flowers and foods) were offered to it. People pray stone
statues for their safety, the prosperity of descendants and so on. Stone statues have been gazing at them for a long time.
I was impressed with the fact they are still emotional support for modern people.
I decided to make artworks like those.
The stone spirits are central existences of everything (human, animals, plans, natural phenomena, and so on
including invisible existence), because it is worshiped in crossings or boundarys.
And, because stone spirits are related to faith to stone bar in jomon era, they are central existence of time connection.
In other words, they are standing in the place where trails of every lives are accumulated.
I paint everyday, thinking about the way to paint to make artworks like stone spirits and JOMON potteries which I
