About the artist
I paint to modify experienced reality through visual perception.
The “Blocks” series hovers between painting and sculpture. It employs shizen (自然): the Japanese concept of naturalness, absence of pretense or artificiality. Material is stretched over a supporting three-dimensional framework, like a tent, and coated with paint.
The work is characterized by “mindful artlessness” and simplicity. Understated and subtle, the work doesn’t only refer to itself, and it doesn’t explain everything.
