I am grateful for this opportunity.

It has been about 16 years since I started printing copper prints.

The chance to start copper printmaking was to watch television one day and a copperplate painter Yamamoto Yoko gave a lecture on copper plate production. When I saw the process of making copper prints, I got interested very much. And I entered art school.

 

But ...

Several failures continued, as I thought I could not make it. The production of copperplate prints must always be nervous in each process. And I do not know what the state of the work is until I press it. I was repeatedly disappointed and failed many times.

 

Still, I continued patiently. I was drawn to the depth of making copperplate prints. Especially, I like techniques to mold with soft ground etching, and express darkness with aquatint. Although I still fail, it is fun to try new things.

I would like to continue to express in copperplate still from now on.

 

My works are black, gray and white, so I want to express darkness. And I'm finding targets that match my skills.
