Ayane Kurai To display life, and to develop a Big heart are the most important techniques and goals for me. I believe that my paintings follow me and grow with me ...just because painting is the voice of my soul. Painting has been the closest method for me to express myself where my physical and mental meet together through my hands. I consider myself an abstract painter, when I tried to be very honest and close to reality, it became abstract. I paint as a human-being, as I hear, smell, taste, touch, see, think, feel, so my subject matter is like my diary and thus the closer to the reality I tried to express, the more abstract it became. Painting is for me a form of communication that relates myself to the world. Sharing emotions through painting makes it possible to cancel geographical and temporal distances and connect people from all over the world.
