Artist Statement

My work involves creating a 3-dimensional flexible organic form of a comfortable ambiance that is yet dynamic and possibly mystical or illusionary. It is an abstract representation of objects or concepts that recreates our surroundings. It can be interpreted in various ways including landscapes, living organisms, social ideas or values, anything that we accept as given that they exist. Through my work, I try to create an opportunity for audiences to see, think and most of all feel our surroundings from various perspectives. We often observe only a part of multi-facets of our surroundings and miss many others.

            A void space has been a recent extension of my work. A space is void if it is found to be useless, uninteresting or simply unnoticed. The void, however, is not always of unworthy. There must be at least one potential as each one of us has. My recent extension explores it’s innate potential by anthropomorphizing it. I begin my exploration by asking ‘what if a void space were a living organism?’ ‘How would he or she survive and restore himself or herself?’ ‘How would he or she fill his or her emptiness?’ ‘How would he or she express his or her ego?’ I attempt to visualize these questions and possibly bring the unnoticed to our attention.
