When I paint a picture, I have a similar feeling of jumping into something strange.
I haven’t done either, but it seems to be similar to bungee jumping and Ama-san’s diving.
Especially at the beginning, I strongly feel like that. It takes courage to jump in, if not fear.
By continuing to listen to the same sounds and music, I can become unhearted, concentrate completely on painting.
And the time comes, I feel like “I can do it now.” Each of my works have been done through that process.
This work is based on “Memory” in the musical CATS. I drew lines as I wanted, and put colors where I felt like to at that moment.
