Artist Statement

I have painted the image of animals, insects and plants in this particular painting. At the same time, I painted a hidden image over the whole painting. The individual image of animals etc. is part of the whole image.
When those animals, insects and plants in the painting move or grow, that hidden image will disappear.
All sceneries eventually vanish, which makes me think how transient and impermanent they are. At the same time, however, I feel that it is the infinite possibility of the next scenery we will have. I want to express how sceneries exist with the double-image technique in the form of painting.
