There is peacefulness in the ancient paintings I was charmed by as a viewer. An invitation to the presence which appears from the fact of looking at them. But, as a creator, I became aware that I am more interested in the movement of lines and the freedom of colors than in the image itself. What is appreciated in Japanese painting is visual hedonism. I think this tradition is vivid in me.
