The meaning of the word "counterpoint" is one of the music theories, and is a technique of superimposing multiple tunes in good harmony with each other while maintaining their independence. The work "counterpoint" is based on German Expressionism, Surrealism and Abstract Expressionisme etc. Various elements such as daily life, the atmosphere of the world, emotions, and memories are superimposed as a tune.

Aonibi is one of the traditional names of Japanese colour. We don't use that color name in everyday conversation. This color was used for mourning clothes in the Heian period (794-1185), and is said to have been created by mordanting black dye from oak or horse chestnut with iron. The web color for Aonibi is said to be #324356 and #6b7b6e, but I don't know which is correct. And both may be different too. My name represents the past and the present, but it also means ambiguity.
