My artwork takes my stories and emotions which I create and I discovered from my life I
enjoy expressing the moment of getting and capturing feelings, I am still learning to
reproduce my emotions and stories with my work. As my first step, I use objects to
release my thought, attaching objects to my painting directly or setting objects in my
painting as symbolic images. The images I use are common symbolic images sometimes
but mostly I bring them from my personal thoughts and my experiences. I use a variety of
materials and processes in each work, I enjoy creating them as a series work with
materials or painting processes. The materials for collage can be changed depending on
what kinds of series that I want to process; theses days, I enjoy using glitters and beads.
The biggest reason I use collage to express, not painting objects on my painting, is the
gap. I want to provide some gap between my subjects and objects. The gap I want to give
viewers can be explain as objectified emotions, the emotions exist the inside of us
but when they come out from the inside to external surface, it can be
show and shared whatever we want or not. When we have the emotions
inside of us, we can be own them as our property or possessions but when
they come out to outside we lose the possession because they are shared,
we are not own them anymore. I thought the gap exist in this state, the
emotions are owned by us from our inside but when they come out we
lose the ownership but we can still be owned them.
I am currently working on a series titled crying girl series. Crying and tears are simple
and effecting methods and material to express feelings and show the gap. These methods
and materials are strong to deliver because of their simplicity and physical properties.
I emphasize and exaggerate eyes, people gather information through eyes seeing and also
delivery too. Seeing through eyes is a quite simple and fast way to communicate but this
communication can be risky because to see is a starting point that is where people stores
prejudice and judgment, but also this way is very pure and naïve, so this thought make
me emphasizing and exaggerating eyes.
Moreover, the image of a girl is very mysterious, vague and ambiguous to me. Their
images are embellished in people’s memories and imagination mostly as pure and sacred
images. However, when the images of a girl come out of reality, the images might be
changed. I want them to live in the embellished imagination world, so when I paint them,
they are mostly cute and beautiful with the image of animation or manga or a doll.
