"At this time in my life, I’m ready to accept or own a kind of romance and melancholy or melodrama that I wasn’t ready to reveal before. It was always there in my inner life as an artist, but I was too afraid to share it."
"In 'Seascapes,' my subject matter is water and air. Stillness...I’m not intentionally promoting it, but most people see it, and it’s very quiet and serene. That’s something that just naturally, automatically comes out through my work."
- Hiroshi Sugimoto
