In 16th and 17th century Japanese art, there was a unique kind of spatial perception. This was not achieved merely through the use of depth and perspective, but the creation of multiple spaces in cohabitation. This multiplicity of spaces did not merely co-exist, but were synthesized. I call this synthesis of the multiple spaces in this art “a pluralistic space”.   My objective is to create in contemporary art works that possess this “pluralistic space”.
