He lives and works in Tokyo, Japan.
The motifs repeated in his work--trees or plants swaying in the wind, sunbeams streaming from the leaves of trees, or the flow of water--are a symbol of evanescence in which a shape does not stop changing even in a moment. By representing those motifs like a shadow that appears but very soon disappears, He is questioning about "What is an object?" In fusing objects into nature, or in depicting boundaries fused and fitted into the surroundings, which can be called "pictorial mimicry," he sees a fate that man as part of nature must respond to the changing environment.
Tsukamoto wonders if what you see is what exists there now or only a trace of something that once existed there and reminds you of its disappearance? How a viewer sees it depends on his or her imagination.
