Full Artist's statement
I am interested in imaginations from observing cities, nature and people, and experiencing their interactions within urban lives. The imaginations are implying my memories by transaction through seasonal and temporal city view and reinterpretation of artifacts and nature of cities where I have been. Artificial and natural objects are transformed, or rather distorted into various colors and forms which have personified and identified characters and perspectives. A new memory space is reconstructed in one piece of painting.
Memories continually break down boundaries between reality and illusion. Shadows in my paintings display the equivocal boundaries between consciousness and unconsciousness; therefore, painted images and cut out spaces create negative and positive spaces. They have intricate effects among spaces and shadows and build many dialogs in their relationships. In addition, I have experimented my paintings, to differ from convention of traditional masterpiece, in many forms such as drapes, books, and wallpapers reflecting modern life.
