I always have the same theme at the bottom of my heart. It is to express what people cannot see and cannot express, such as space, air, time, and distance. I always try to depict the colorless transparency that exists between the eye and the object, rather than using objects as a medium for unrealistic expression.
I would like to express what I feel in my modern life and the imaginary world that is born from it, while crossing them with the charm of the glass material. Glass shows various expressions depending on the production process. When melted at high temperatures, it becomes fluid like syrup, and the surface that was exposed to the air when it melted has a beautiful luster, while the surface that was in contact with the mold has a soft texture like frosted glass. Also, when copper is added, the color changes to red or blue. While drawing out the charm of the various kinds of glass, I aim to create works that will make the viewer’s imagination grow.
The relationship between a painter and a model is similar to that between a cook and an ingredient. No matter how good a cook you are, if the ingredients are not delicious, you have nothing to show for it. Many women have helped me to become the person I am today. That’s why I want to be able to depict not only the superficial beauty but also the inner strength and kindness of women. I hope that the women depicted in my works will remain with me for a long time to come, and I believe that this will be my way of repaying the women who supported me. (From WORKSOFKENTANAKAJIMA)
I use metal forging and engraving techniques. I cut out animals and ordinary scenes from everyday life and make them into works of art. I hope you can feel the fascination of metal materials.
