"空刻メメント・モリ弐"

Paint on Hinoki Wood

"Ambivalence   Memento Mori”

"Memento Mori
My sculpture questions “What is life?” “What is death?”
I know there is no clear answer, but again today I carve while asking, “Memento mori?”
I used Japanese wood carving techniques to express the western theme of “Memento mori”.”

"私の彫刻は”生”とは”死”とはという問いかけである。
明確な答えが出ないのを知りながら、今日も「メメントモリ?」と問い、刻むのである。
西洋的主題の”メメントモリ”を日本的木彫技法で表現した。”
