I Love Love / Oil on canvas φ80cm 2015
I often depict female images in my works, which come with unrealistic scenes and lights and shadows. In my painting, as if those female images were moving away to far distance, and also as if they have always been living in the images I created. In this absolute vacuum and painterly space, everything is clear, and everything is unknown. I particularly want to express through my paintings the mysterious and ritualistic beauty of modern women, and wish that the women in my works are full of strength and courage against the intimidating force of fate, showing no weakness and fragility.
The women in my paintings, who walk back and forth in between the cool fruit trees in the garden or sit on the pine trees with glistening dewdrop. They are all shrouded in the morning mist, the ideal life that I cannot easily achieved. Everything is like the mind of a maiden: crystal clear, transparent, and fearless, no matter if it is appreciated or not, I always protect the beauty in my heart.
I constantly work with the details in my pictures: tall coconut trees, mustang straying away from the group, raindrops, the beach, light blue sea water, the fantastic animals in the ocean, and the tropical rainforest... In the process of depicting these details, I light up the liveliness of those images. The girls and the animals together guard this clear and transparent light. The world that I have constructed with color and image, the unique beauty with a bit of transparency, are emerging from my eyes.
Facing with the fierce competition in society, I hope that children of the future can grow in a wide landscape and make diverse contacts with nature. Therefore, I try to build an affectionate and warm space in my paintings. The girls in my paintings are clear, bright, and full of unknown. They have reminded us of our childhood. I imagine myself as the girls in my works, who grow up at the beach, brave and free.
Rendering, complementing, daubing, highlighting… I immerse myself in the process of painting is full of magic and unknown. My eyes and my heart are delighted as the overlapping images constantly appear.
I have finally found the freedom of my own.
