《Concept of presentation》
Soul and nature
The work of an artist must get its power through the concrete life. Landscape, body, nature, soul and prayer, All of them are the mother of spirit. In such a totality, a border district mey be a place for the artistic creativity.
I would like to present the microcosms(the body) and at the same time express the deepest live feeling.
YUKI’s body always catches the Northern wind, and changes it’s state from honey to powder, and diffusions in light.
