Reflection of my state of mind -II (2022-, on going )
English / 日本語
We are surviving everyday lives. We need to get our dreams and imagination back. I have been swamped with daily life and obsessed with everyday matters. Unknowingly, I have lost room in my heart. While I have compared myself with others and thought of my own advantage, it created a lot of stress. When I realized other people saw me negatively, I felt uneasy, and it made me want to die. The evil eyes from others are the same as guns. It could cause people to commit suicide.
One day, I strolled in nature. I wanted to be free from this situation. While walking in nature, one tree caught my eyes. Perhaps I have been looking for something with which I can sympathize without realizing it. It looked lonely and was complex shaped. I identified the distress of my heart with it and considered my life. I felt my feelings recovered.
I want to get my dreams back. And I want to recover my spirit. People let their imaginations run freely and positively. I call them “dreams”. A real picture of life breaks my imagination and brings me back to reality. In my artworks, I cut off the reality of things. As animations that are drawn with lines take people across the globe to the world of imagination, I want my artworks to inspire people like that. Trees are represented by lines in my artworks, which relieve me from reality and take me to the dream world.
