My recent paintings are containing elements of well-known images, figures, texts, visual art genres, and digital collage. One can take Photoshop-Realism as a tag but it is not all about that. With the illusionistic space that I constructed through different ways of representation, I hope my works can do something to my viewer’s prejudice; about art viewing, criticizing, and the established ways of distinguishing visual art elements.
