We live today in a realm that has been immensely complexified by the increased movements of human and its progress, and the race gives an inaccurate picture of posterity. In this shift, visual & culture, material & objects, assemblage, image & perception overlaps and create the most fantastic collisions. The very fundamental description of my art practices is… the essence of my art is always discover the new “acts” of found materials/objects, “construct NEW from ORDINARY”.

My practices describe perceptual and conceptual challenges through the mechanisms of “juxtaposition of material/objects” accumulation and metaphor. The formal language of my artwork define structures collapsing, harmonizing & synchronizing, at the same time conjunction between materials and objects depicts my work formally & conceptually surreal. For example my solo show “Contrapposto” refers the state of equilibrium harmony & balance which is created by opposite force. As the evolving of urban civilization accelerates, the emergence of new forms gets more chaotic and unpredictable, and the complexity of structural relationships between material and objects performed by the act of resisting. The Object(chair) I re-discovered its meaning through my own process. Chair is a valuable object because of its character. It is a permanent gesture of ourselves/our body. Human body sets parameter to everything so the gesture of typical chair itself makes a wider sense. In the series, the chair is symbolized with Human & its act. “Contrapposto” resonates metaphorically with personalities, identities, social awareness and human revolution & progress.

I challenge the idea of perception and to create the diversity, where the kind of inactive body attracts the active bodies and in a way the active one is more active by the inactive. The moment where the typical notions contradict the co-existing opinion.
