“Although I feel that my ideas and concepts are based on Western aesthetics, my Japanese ancestry and rearing seem to erupt sporadically from time to time during my career.  I find it mainly in the subject matter, but also in my need to simplify form and composition of my subjects, as I have done in this nekko (catbox).”

アイディアや概念は西洋的美学が元になっているように感じますが、日系人であることは私の作品制作の中で時折溢れ出てくるように思います。それはよく主題として、またはこの“ねこ”という作品のように、簡素なかたちや構成においてみられます。
