The paintings are narrative works which refer to specific places and events, and the content varies with each group of paintings. For example, the series entitled “The Ascension of Lily Cheung” is about the capacity for hope. “One of the Reasons for the Death of David Minors” is about superstition, “Letters from the Hotel Aroma” and “A Room with a View” deal with a sense of place, and the series “A Moment in the Showa Era”, A Moment in the Heisei Era” and “The Geometry of Birds” have to do with ways of measuring time.
