I hold the feeling

I hold the feeling - 思いを抱く

Where do we come from and where do we go from here? I draw in order to seize what is present. It may not be as genuine as it should be - when capturing a shadow in my drawing - if I fail to grasp an instant motion. Laying out the photos in which I captured the moment of the water surface flickering with the light or the plants swaying in the wind, I realize a totally different landscape comes into being. I become insecure but fall in raptures at the same time, having a glimpse of this infinite possibility. It makes me feel as if I touch eternity. My feet are on the ground. I have someone I care about next to me. My body is warm. There are certain unknown streams, which I can only detect because of this. I, as a given finitude, scratch the surface of the sphere where these streams intersect innumerably. My work is a record of these streams, I wonder what it can possibly expose on the basis of being inaccurate, and my illusion.
