Philosophy of Kirie Paper Art


“Strain your ears.

Do you hear the sound of the knife running to cut paper?

Has your hand felt how a sharp blade cuts paper?

A picture will be born from the sound and the feeling.

Just like that, light comes into the darkness, one tiny piece at a time.

When the light shines on black paper, it won’t be just paper any more.It will be flowers, animals, views that full of life!

This main theme is my biggest joy and challenge, to express the shine of life through making Kirie works.”
