These works ware one of my old project in 2003. Name is “Kon-Yo”.
“KON-YO” means “Form of Roots” in Japanese.
I wanted to express a strength life, and power of nature.
This tree’s name is Sakishimasuo-tree (Sakishimasuo-no-ki) have odd root looking like board.That is very unique in Japan. I can’t help feeling the figurative beauty this tree’s roots.
We can see Sakishimasuo-tree at Iriomote-Islad, Amami-Oshima, Ishigaki-Island, and Okinawa in Japan.
