Landscapes of the existence,landscapes of the period,landscapes of the art.
to cover these spaces in total freedom leads to a new work.

With a fresh mind day after day, I let my 3H pencil glide across the white paper.As I endeavor to capture the spaces that emerge freely, I am filled with a sense of bliss, as if I were giving birth to a new world. All my creations arose from this feeling.
I wish that, inspired by an inner state of innocence, while physically and mentally embedded in the cosmos, the surrounding nature and society, I can keep producing works of art full of a deep sense of spirituality.

Yoshimi ODAWARA
