About Photography (lately) 写真について

Through photography tries to visualize the "waves of lives (lightwaves)" of people/towns on the street.  写真を通し、路上の人々・街の "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。

日々の暮らしと経験は、”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。
