About the Artwork

The sliced images in his works demonstrates a reinterpretation of familiar images in an unfamiliar manner. The viewer may feel that a figure in this series is placed in the same position of his or her everyday life, which is the first communication between the viewer and this artwork. The viewer is able to come close to unfamiliar layers that forge a family image through such natural communication without feeling any incongruity. Some space is within such layers that shape a form, which has absorption draw the external into the internal. Spaces formed within his works through sliced images display wavelengths like waves, running into the viewer’s eyes. His works can be constantly metamorphosed depending on the viewer’s eyes and external spaces through such “grains.” The “grains” bring his work into another context by showing familiar images in a freshly unfamiliar fashion. This is like a variable in our common daily lives, appearing as a visual amusement in his work.
