Rouketsuzome 

I make artwork with rouketsuzome.  Rouketsuzome is one of techniques used to dye cloth. For rouketsuzome, we make use of the characteristic of wax: the wax on cloth resists the penetration of dye. Rouketsuzome is created with brushes, wax and dye. We  control wax and use it prevent the cloth being dyed.

Statement

I was born in Yamagata-gun, Hiroshima. It has a lot of beautiful nature. I feel close to nature, and I think nothing is more beautiful than nature. I am fully aware that neither my artwork nor my imagination can exceed the beauty of nature; nature presents us with a different beauty every single day.

The reason why I use dying techniques is because I feel that dyes drifting with the current in water can recreate the current of particles in the water and the air. The-out-of-control moves of dyes can give my artworks a natural expression on cloth.

I pursue a new art style by combining my imagination and a natural phenomenon, utilizing the power of nature.
