My paintings represent my desire to communicate a bridging of opposites -- my life experiences in my native Japan and my adoptive America.
My approach to painting is a melding of methods, past and present.
There is also a bridging between the rhythm of nature and the tempo of technology the inner spirit and outer form.
In my works, I have built layers of a variety of materials, techniques and forms to reflect the divergence of our culture.
For me the freely shaped forms suggest the freedom of nature.
There is no preconceived pattern.
The geometric patterns expose a skeletal structure, restating my desire to unite and equalize different influences.
