Inspired by the horizons of Bournemouth beach and the New Forest|水平線と地平線

I am drawn to go to see the horizon, to see myself beyond it dispassionately, listening to the unconsciousness, and make it revealed. As a result, I can make myself aware of who I am and how I exist in this world. The line seems to be the boundary between each of us and the outside world. Both the world and oneself could be defined by capturing the line, nevertheless, it is like the horizon which disappears when we reached it.

My paintings focus on drawing the viewer’s eyes into them through the use of watery or translucent acrylic colour. A subtle hint, which emerges from underneath or edges of the canvas, could make the viewer trace the history of the process of painting. Through this I would expect the viewer to look for their own aesthetics in the imperfection of the paintings, illuminating their imagination. In these days, there is a flood of information and people seem to be able to perceive it as a stimulus without thinking. Our senses would have been dulled, however, I believe my art work could have a function to act on individual aesthetic sense.

We are here living our lives, always estimating the ‘distance’ between ourselves and the world, and there should be an interrelation for better or worse. The boundary line could be liminal, or just like the skin which distinguishes between inside and outside of body. It won’t be able to become clear, but it is obvious that we walk on the line consciously and unconsciously.
