Art Description

Painting: Oil on Canvas.

I recognized disappearance or the sense of disappearance and nonexistence, which triggered a defense mechanism and this was the starting point of the face series. The threat of nonexistence naturally led me to yearn for the sense of existence and made me obsess on it. Abandoned in a deteriorating world, I experienced the sense of being erased and removed, and this made me recognize the sense of existence which resists the sense of nonexistence, and the experience triggered me to yearn for and obsess on that sense of existence. Afterward, I involuntarily started to focus on subjects which are marked with nonexistence: alienated beings who are familiar and similar. In other words, I gazed subjects who deserve attention yet do not get attention. A person, an undoubtedly corporeal person who exists here, has passed me by just now, but I can’t even explain what s/he looked like. Exactly how many people pass us by in a day? Accept the torrent of these beings, and the self will evaporate. My obsession for existence was ignited by this sense of deficiency, and I intended to preserve the sense of existence through painting.
