 As cells are reborn in our body every day, life and death repeat. The body that we always see from the outside in the same way is always changing on the inside. 
Every relationship we have changes our consciousness and feelings so they change and disappear with each contact. As well as causing changes in our body, these changes are more transitory and unforeseeable than physical change. 
Our relationships with other people can give rise to misunderstandings when outer appearances belie the inner changes that occur. 
In my work, I express and contrast the difference of textures between the inside and outside of the human body, by creating various shapes from a very ordinary person's back. I use a technique called KANSHITSU (made from URUSHI/lacquer, soil and cloth), which is one of the traditional techniques for sculpture production in the East.
