I stayed in Brooklyn three  weeks in September, last year.
At that time I went Brooklyn flea markets in three times and got some dolls to paint pictures.
Also I got some maps and posters which have various patterns.
I put them into frames and paint the images on the glass of that frames.
This year I will have a solo show with a motif of Brooklyn toys that I got there and the title of the show is “They came from over the sea”

My works are connected with my daily life, also they relate with the exhibition spaces. I paint objects on empty package boxes, traditional Japanese papers and used clothes. I try to make site-specific installations in my shows. Basically I set up not only my works but also the small objects. I would like to make the comfortable spaces that viewers want to stay there long time. They look like diaries for me.
