Artist Statement Submitted 2017

In my paintings and sculptures, I visualize the spaces which are hidden and unrealized but believed to exist. Trusting that I often tend to build and live in my imaginative space rather than an actual physical one, I explore the relationship between a visionary space where I want to inhabit and a real space of my daily life.

On the other hand, in my Red Dot series subtitled 'Buy One Get One Free', I think about the hardship of being an artist whose work is not selling from a gallery show these days. By featuring tiny versions of my old sold and unsold larger paintings, I make a documentation of (un)sold works and indicate a promotion for unsold works. Ultimately the series is a satire of me becoming more of a salesperson than an artist.
