The beauty of Japan lacquer ware shows when used in a waning light,not in sunlight.
Darkness is a necessary condition for it.
Black in my pictures is an accumulation of darkness.
In unclear light,I gazed unfinished,vanishing and far from a perfection.
Because my eyes are fascinated by imperfection around my life.
The imperfection is not a process to a perfection but a process from a perfection.
A fleeting moment in a vanity caught me soundlessly.
