“Collectively, the works were none other than a reflection of me, maybe even embarrassingly so. I desired to expose myself even more through my works; I wanted to be true to myself. What else matters? That is the one thing I know that I am good at.”
“Even if you find a tangled-up thread, you don’t have to cut it off, you can leave it to create a new pattern. In other words the path is endless and you can keep on going – no turning back.”
’When I have needles, threads, and other special materials in front of me, something stirs deep inside my unconscious mind in spite of myself, and I am filled with strong emotion.That is when I regain my true self’
