My recent body of work explores and organizes organic structures and landscapes I pass by in everyday life. I unite and manage images derived from varied life forms such as wood, flowers, plants, and so on. I crystalize these images from the environment to form my own world of emotion and awareness. Through these imagined landscapes, I strive to create a peaceful mind for myself and share my vision of the beauty in nature.
My works of art were formerly realized through oil painting, but has transformed into pen drawn works on canvas and panel. The organic nature of canvas and panels brings out a different visual interpretation of my mental thoughts. The action of drawing fine one–dimensional lines on a permanent platform forces me to meditate deeply about my experience and express it with precision. Unlike oil painting, the permanence of ink does not allow me to retreat or correct which is in likeness to actions taken in true life.
