About The Artwork

Dreaming of a nostalgic, beautiful childhood diorama of all the precious things we loved together back then.. An old wooden horse, an old plastic Ottogi doll, a top blurry with paint on a rusty tin, a round, large-eyed Sony Angel. The toys that were best friends of my childhood, the me that was imprinted on them, us... There is something like comfort in a long-held object that makes you feel like you're back in a familiar place. I hope that an old doll can make you hang around a small memory of the past and make you smile by warmly embracing the wounds of your daily life. Like the climax in the movie, it's a brilliant childhood diorama, I hope we can find the traces of our touch and the layers of memories we've built.

Insecurity, Sein und Zeit At least for me, painting means starting for relieving and healing anxiety. I’m painting by the rules that accidently happened among objets(objects) and space in spite of myself. Sometimes, the effectiveness that belongs to all things in the picture randomly makes the energy of the painting. I have been trying to do my best, thinking that the present I’m staying is the most important. However, kind of unconsciously dark and melancholy emotion seized time to come Why don’t I have satisfactory comfort and stability even within my repetitive routine and too monotonous flow? Unaccustomed strange moment, I might be spending day and day filled with habitual anxiety about space. Space is the norm of physical boundary and recognition of distance for ordinary people, but it is ambiguous fear for me. Habitual alert, despair, and pain drive my life into anxiety. “Anxiety is the fundamental mood of existence.” said Martin Heidegger. This phrase makes me get beguiling relief.
