Based on the idea that comes from moments of everyday repetition,
after a long time of the creation of each work,
the remnants of the heartfelt emotion that resonate with the finished works remain as lingering in the chest.
For an artist, inspiration shines in the dark and disappears in a moment.
It is really an instant.
Therefore, art is to blow life into the vanishing fire to sublimate it into a flame of immortality.
