My painting explores the origin of a painting using a form of landscape painting as a starting point. I choose only one action of it: reproducing the colours in landscape. I believe this simple action would reveal the (un-)necessity of a painting viewed by the people living in today’s society. In the series “REVIVE”, I use the record of photos of meals before and after the surgery. This is because I think it would symbolise what stomach surgery brings to myself, and it might be the best material to give the viewers time to read the meanings. I have processed the photos into mosaics, extracted colours from them, and faithfully painted dots with it. The information can be easily obtained by showing a photograph, but I think that the abstracted vague "paintings" can tell something more than "information" to the viewers by taking time to read and understand it. It is a Information that includes minor phenomena such as the materiality of canvas, touch of paints, and the physicality of the artist. For example, the passage of time before and after a meal, or what is "to eat" for a person whose stomach has been removed. It’s the period like you can feel like you know everything easily just by swiping the touchscreen or surfing the internet. I don't deny that we're in a world of convenience, however, I want to question whether we really see and understand the world (or you) in a true sense. I want to convey we must remember that the truth is in the world that we actually touch, experience and see with our five senses, and that our perception could be diverse. And in the result of communicating that art would be essential to nurture humanity and has the potential to accept others, I believe it will enrich people's hearts and make the world a little more kind. /////////////// "REVIVE" Sunrise 2020 Acrylic on canvas 30x15x3.5cm *Ship in a dedicated box.*

She chooses only one action of it: reproducing the colours in landscape. She believes, as a result, it would reveal the (un-)necessity of a painting viewed by the people living in today's society.
