2004 Cedar Trees.jpg

With the Fusuma-e for the Eihei-ji temple, I painted the changes of the four seasons in which each season overlapped the next. This paining is on a folding screen, and I have taken out and painted the cedar part of the Fusuma-e that I made for the Eihei-ji temple. As I started painting with the sumi ink, I got more and more attracted to describing and expressing within the paintings with just sumi ink, and I started to think that I want to establish my own world of sumi ink. I think painting with just the sumi ink can actually give out more images than painting with colors. I would like to try more of the sumi ink paintings, as there are still a lot of possibilities hidden with the sumi ink.
