I intend to conduct research on works of Japanese art made over the past three centuries. As a result of this research, I will create drawings of objects made on boards, the subject matter and form of which will be derived from my previous inspirations and materials collected in Japan. During this process, I would like to focus on enriching my practical skills and expanding my knowledge of compositional strategies used in the applied and illustrative arts of ancient and modern Japan.

I am interested in exploring the relationship between phenomena in opposition to each other, on many levels of reality. I often use the convention of documentary work, working with photographic documents, as well as, text in my work. Since the history of mankind is a history of manipulation, lies and violence, I often work with these qualities, balancing between fact and its interpretation, myth, and the multiplicity of parallel functioning versions of the description of reality.
