Through my work, I create an iconic composition of variant yet idiosyncratic forms, contours and surfaces reinvented from the physical appearance of materials or the imaginary shapes of my drawings. For my selective attention to particular shapes and peculiar looks discovered in everyday visual realm fashion, architecture, graphic design and nature, I intentionally (or unconsciously) archive things and images by collecting dismantled objects, cutting out a part from a whole image, and photographing a certain framed view. I personalize each one as an original beauty defined through my intimate observation, moreover each individual element in my work is like a piece of me, representing my emotional and psychological state.
My work is not only a self expression, but also a platform to present my suggestive notion based on an investigation of a complex relationship between a human and a certain surrounding. In 2D works, painting and mixed media collage, I construct a geographical maplike imagery or a loosely structured scenery by blending various outlines rendered with multiple colors and patterns. 3D works explore possibilities of converting a plain space into a personalized space through the use of often a combination of varied types of material mainly paint and industrial materials, that organically fulfills the physical space, creating uniquely immersive environments incorporated with the existing architectural components.
