Artist. Creator. Visionary.

My philosophy of creating is a sophisticated sensitivity into two and three dimensional material in which I try to give an explanation about the multiple sensory experiences of an instant. The simultaneous experiencing of sensation between substantial and insubstantial situations has inspired me, and the unusual conjunction of circumstances has given me an affection for a spiritual nature. 


What fascinates me about spirituality is the image of a situation. The middle of the night is quiet, silent, subdued, undisturbed, and motionless, only a fine branch of a tree is swaying in the wind or a candle is flickering in the breeze. The assumption that this is really a silent and a dark night, and the phenomenon is the movement of the objects. The motion of the swaying branch and the flickering candle break the silence of the night, and they are visible objects shaken by wind, an invisible force. This situation is an image that I delineated. 


Under the concentration of our attention, we can sense daily events and natural phenomena sensitively, such as the swaying of the branch, flickering of the candle, the sound of a clock, the blooming of a flower, and so on. I coined the phrase delicate movement for the something we perceive sensitively. Delicate movement happens everywhere regularly around us. It is shrouded in all the main concerns of daily life. I tried to relate the meaning of “delicate” to the circumstances of our lives to verify the concept of the delicate movement. The delicate movement seems to be hidden, wrapped, oppressed, and controlled by daily life. Because of the delicate movement like a swaying branch or a flickering candle gets swept aside in the bustle of modern life, these are the “quiets” in daily life. 


The two doubling phenomena, chaos and calm, has impressed the way I create. The situation of multiple visual and sensory experiences happening at the same time has guided me to approach the use of the method of layering and overlapping of the velvety shading. 


It has been the essential motivation of my creation.
