Human beings’ inexplicable emotions are full of complexity, with many layers inside. My works represent the world’s duality and uncertainness, but also expresses desire to be free from the fear of unknown future, where we can only accept as it comes. Self-images are layered here and there in different colors, but they are not important as a whole; they are only a part of whole. Each piece is connected, layered, and flows together. In this way, I take part in a process of nurturing, which forms a basic component of our shared quest for the value of our existence.

The idea of ‘Uninterrupted Continuity’ is of major significance in my recent works. Since I grew up in an extremely conservative environment, complete with rigid sets of rules and demands, I tend to feel uncomfortable with framed or blocked space. This tendency to openness is also related to my concern with cosmo-centric philosophy, as opposed to egocentric-based ideas.

Upon processing a work of dye- sublimation, ambiguous memories, unclear thoughts, forgotten moments are magnified and brought into the present. The procedure of magnification and assemblage of the particles from the past has been greatly performed and visualized in the form of digital printing.
