CONCEPT
Deconstruction, assembly, quotation, and reconstruction of lines.
I use calligraphy, which I have been doing since I was a child, as a means of expression.
I would like to draw out the elements of lines that I find beautiful in classical calligraphy and bring them into the present with a modern sensibility.
In particular, I was influenced by the work Masu-shikishi from the set of three classic calligraphy works called Sanshikishi.
I find my ideal female image, like those who behave flexibly and naturally in this somewhat uncomfortable society, in the calligraphy lines that are soft and not showing any intensity yet which have a sense of tension.
I am exploring new possibilities for calligraphy by experimenting with a range of methods of expression, such as breaking down and reconstructing the shapes of characters, emphasizing shadows, and forming three-dimensional brush strokes.
