In my work, I express my feelings and thoughts that I experienced during my visits around the world being invited to exhibitions, art residences, and workshops. I carve a plywood remembering the light that fell on me, temperature that I sensed, and scent that lingered in each place before printing the image on washi paper with a baren or a printing pad. In the era where every corner of the world can be visualized via internet and the information gets overloaded, it is becoming increasingly important to see with your own eyes, to take a journey, to ruminate, and to create using your own hands. I think creating can be analogized to planting a small stake in torrential river called ‘today.’ It may look like a futile act, yet we need to hang onto the stake; otherwise, we will be swept away. http://www.katsutoshiyuasa.com/
