About Photography (lately) 写真について

Though photography tries to visualize the "waves of lives (lightwaves)" of people in towns and on the street. 

写真を通し、街・路上で人々の "生の波(光の波)" の視覚化に取り組んでいます。

 

About Painting 絵画について

Tries to express basic human emotions through "waves" that arise from someplace inside of her. Her own day-to-day life and experience affect how these "waves" are translated to the canvas. 

自身の内側から生じる”波”を通し、人のベーシックな感情の表現に取り組んでいます。

日々の生活と経験は、”波”がどうキャンバスに反映されるかに影響を与えるのです。
