"A Memory and afterimage, a presence of a preexistence, a symbolic nature, these are the themes of my creation.
Motifs of my drawings would be changed every time I drew; however the process remains the same every time. Newspaper photos that I observed, things that I casually used, views that I like, those miscellaneous daily memories are piled up in my mind; then these are suddenly spewed out to be my drawing images.
My works are ambiguous boundaries between ordinary and extraordinary daily life." Ritsuko Ozeki, 2015
