Through my paintings, I have been simply searching for myself. Beyond logic or intellect, every image directly comes from my heart, so I truly enjoy the unexpected mixture of colors and images which are often created on a canvas. Color is a strong tool to express our emotions and nonverbal messages. In my paintings, colors often play the role of metaphors. Especially, the colorful images of "fading into the light," which I often use to represent things such as diversity, freedom, flexibility, optimism, transformation, spontaneousness, and the depth of our being. I also see my own process of learning as a human being in every painting I create. In other words, my paintings reflect "me", "us", and the "existence of the universe itself."
