“This is the Yukawa river, a small stream originating from one of the famous active volcanos in Japan, Mt. Asama. I often walk down to this river from my atelier for landscape sketches and fly-fishing. The most impressive thing is the bright sunshine in summer, which gives me special inspiration I cannot feel elsewhere. The movement of the surface of this river reflects various colors. It looks like transparent mosaic glass and I feel as if I'm also a part of a stream of time and space. The sound of the river and wild birdsongs with their spiritual voices carries to me in the cold air. The sacred silence filling the spaces between sound, I put all of them into this canvas with all my energy.” - Katsu Nakajima
