This art work was inspired by transcription of Buddist sutras.
Transcription of sutras for praying for peace and security is widely practiced in Japan from ancient times. Nowadays meanwhile it is also popular to take a look yourself again through transcribing sutras irrespective of religious practice in these days. It is not necessary to understand all philosophical meanings of sutras. Instead, it seems to be more important to reduce stress and to enhance concentration by continuing writing characters with a brush and ink.
Under the condition of unpredictable natural disasters and coronavirus crisis, I was likely to be crashed by stress and uneasiness like other people in the world. We have to fight against an invisible terror. I have started drawing landscape in my mind in white ink on a roll of washi paper. Transcribing landscape in my mind helped me to take a look at myself and reduce negative feelings by inscribing myself continuously on paper. I have started the drawing on a roll of washi paper since March 2020 and completed recently. The length of the roll paper is 23 meters.
It could be said that it is a diary about a mental journey, or my sutra. It is created by only visual images. Images change slightly its forms, colors and size by feeling. It is sometimes very energetic and sometimes delicate. It is not necessary for the audience to fully understand meaning of the drawing just as a real sutra. Images represent a number of different meanings and ideas, and give audience more rooms to see the story in a different way based on their experience and environment.
