Artist Statement:
Certain uncertainty
Everything on the canvas is symbolized imagery. Images are certain, but the stories contained therein are uncertain. Or the other way around. The images reflect the composition of certain perceptions described in colors and shapes. The colors reveal temperature and atmosphere. The silhouettes embody the forms. And the texture of the colors is the time and motion of the painting. What I saw creates what I haven’t seen yet. The newly created images reconstruct my vision. The figures and things from outside turn into the composition of colors and shapes inside of me. Pictures are my perception. The painting itself is a conversation about the world as it is perceived. When I shine a light on it, it casts its own shadow. Art is the shadow of one's own.
