Artist's Statement

When I walk on the streets everyday, I think about the existence and movement of every individual, and I'm curious about the reality of the space I'm in.

Subject matter of my art works is the nature of the world, and the deeper structures of our society and the universe. My object originally comes from cityscapes and streetscapes where I'm in. Later that expend to all kinds of environments and space we are in. I'm trying to reveal how each sides of the society constitute the construction of the world, and how each individuals interacting
with the "whole", what's the relationship between them. I'm trying to dissect the complex "systems" of the multiple spaces and visualize dimensions.

I use varietal materials and tools. I combine eastern and western materials and marks in order to show more cultural variety and present different perspectives. My visual language includes abstract points, lines and shapes with different tones. These basic elements mainly work as abstractions but also as representations.
