My work consists of eccentric colors and decaying subjects. By merging odd motifs, I wish to create harmony, stimulation and solemnity, all at once. The decayed food depicted in the work is a gift from my mother; one day, I unintentionally spoiled a box of fruit and vegetables that my mother had sent from my hometown. It hurt me, but at the same time, it reminded me of the words my late grandmother used to say: “all things must pass.” Once their time in this world has passed, all life loses form. The decayed subjects are combined with the motifs that are originally from Hanafuda, the traditional Japanese card game. My grandmother who taught me the concept of impermanence is also the one who taught me how to play the game of Hanafuda.
