Art has always been a form of contemplation for Kazu Tabu. It enables him to think and be aware of things, and it helps him construct and deconstruct his thoughts and feelings toward people, objects, and events while staying non-judgmental about them. He explores the relationship we and our man-made world have with nature and the universe – physically and spiritually – and delves deeper into life’s big questions. His artworks reflect such devastating natural disasters as earthquakes and tsunamis as well as our everyday grief and joy in the mundane. By illustrating the bottomless abyss of our dreams and realities, he wishes to remind people of the importance and existence of the present moment in which we only exist.
