Plastic Continent


Artist Statement

The power of mother nature is great. It takes a long time to cut the earth and create formative beauty. It takes a long time so daunting. A little bit by little. But it sometimes breaks in a moment and creates a new surface. And new beauty is born again. We can not see the same expression again.

I think it resembles a big city “TOKYO” I live in.

A large city, surrounded by large buildings, where many people live, always looks like the same expression and changes every day. It looks like it’s changing a bit and slightly. But sometimes a big earthquake comes and destroys everything. And over time, a new everyday begins.

Our urban life seems like a man-made, non-natural act that is far from natural.
No. All our actions are natural. It’s not far from nature. All is the great nature that God created.
I feel that way from such natural beauty.
