  • Catalogue Essay

    It's strange but I feel there's a kind of literary side to my work.  It's the same with painting: it's a matter of taking your brushes and blasting forward!  Painting is dead easy!  Well, no, it isn't.  For me, painting and photography are instantaneous arts.  Each depicts a specific moment.  And they're both about seeing. Nobuyoshi Araki, from A. Miki, Y. Isshiki, and T. Sato, Nobuyoshi Araki: Self Life Death, London, 2006, p. 266
