I create my works based on my philosophy of "Surrender to Nature".Human beings are tiny in comparison to Nature. We humans are just a little part of magnificent nature. Therefore, I try to surrender my works to nature as much as possible. In a way, my works may be created by nature, not by me. This work is made by Japanese traditional dyeing technique called Dorozome which is a type of mud dyeing techniques originated from Southern Japan island Amami Oshima. The process involves dyeing white threads repeatedly until they reach a deep black color. Traditionally, the technique is used for the production of Oshima Tsumugi, delicate patterned woven silk kimonos. Plants and soil of Amami Oshima are used in dorozome, and the naturalistic technique has been going on for more than a thousand years.Dorozome I'm doing now is a unique method of pulling up the canvas after it has been soaked in the mud field for about a month. In the meantime, I have just waited until nature finished it. I work with my philosophy of eliminating the arbitrariness of the artist as much as possible and surrendering myself to nature.
