“The weight of gold and silver will capture even the passage of time herself. So one could find, within the visual space created by gold and silver, a moment of eternity.”

-Matazo Kayama
“The problem that I could not overcome with Art being religion is that the more I focused on myself, the less I could find myself. A schism grew inside between who I wanted to be and what I did…Finding beauty in nature and art, I did not have a ‘shelf’ to place that beauty inside my heart.”
-Makoto Fujimura, Refractions
