“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).”
