Artist's Statement

I have been searching inside myself for deeply hidden “Traumas” and releasing them wherever I find them. In my inner vision there are many unexpected shapes and images coming one after another.

Recently I am expressing these images concretely using dolls that connote my identity.
I also sometimes pretend *“鬼子母神/Kishimojin”( a cannibalistic demon) and attempt peaceful negotiation between my “Inner Child”, which refers to all of the emotional memory stored in the brain, and me.
