“Sectional Images” is my coined word, and it means “a momentary phenomenon/representation in which space-time is embraced.”

Artist Statement

Time flows with space every moment, and momentary phenomena change as a result of dependent origination. It was May in 2015. The moment I started drawing a spiral by dropping Sumi ink liquid on Repel paper (synthetic paper), I felt that the momentary phenomenon created by the spiral was the accumulation of the past, present, and future, including time and space.Read more...
I named one cut "Sectional image", and since then, it has become my lifework.
