Artist Statement

I have always been drawn to forms and lines since my childhood. Everything in the world consists of these fundamental elements, and I perceive undeniable beauty in them, whether they're natural or artificial.

I consider my art-making process to be spiritual; it's a quest for the essence of objects and a purification process where a single element is explored, refined, and expressed. I employ a diverse range of humble materials, such as paint, ink, enamel, plastic, and clay – whatever best conveys the idea I am pursuing.

I harmonize my sculptures with a delicate use of painting to convey the richness and complexity of natural forms. My work reflects motifs of life, encompassing organic shapes, elemental forces, and body parts of humans, insects, and animals.

During the art-making process, I transcend my sense of self and transform into a vessel that captures and expresses the world's beauty. In these moments, I realize that I, too, am a simple object existing in this universe. This perspective allows me to be not only an observer but also a part of what is being observed. This connection with the world fuels my creative process.
