Artist’s Statement

Artist may have freedom, but they may not. They can create their art by struggling for their freedom. I wish I had wings and were free from the burden of my flesh, and I am wondering what the world look like if I could see from beyond space and time. But the reality is that we are not free from gravity and we can not overcome space and time in the blink of an eye.

I’ve been looking for images of landscape in which there is a mixture of memories of where I used to be, an awareness of where I am now, and longing for where I want to be.

I cherish and grow these seeds of images of landscape which are not yet visible. It’s like a line of poem, a fragment of story, an unfinished song. Then I try to make it visible to share with you. I hope my works will be clues to weave your own story which is mixture of your memories and imagination.
