"Twenty years ago or so I faced the torment of missing the direction of painting, hopelessly at an impasse with no way out.
It was at that time of despair when I encountered Maitreya bodhisattva* at Koryuji Temple in Kyoto. Standing in front of the statue emitting gentle lights with dignity beyond time and space, I received “something” that I could not find appropriate words for.
Since then, it has been all I hope my painting will communicate : “something” that directly reaches you.
I am and will be on the way to looking for that “something”.
