Artist Statement

My work explores my personal interpretations of daily life through harmonious mixed media assemblages, inviting the viewer to absorb both the complexity and the clarity of my vision. I construct my paintings in a unified manner to ensure that a strong theme is recognized on the canvas — a method developed through my previous training as a traditional Chinese brush painter.

I have been deeply influenced by the beauty and serenity of Japanese culture. This influence is reflected through the blending and layering of bold-colored undertones with a minimalist color palette that emerges to the surface to create a landscape of depth and contrast.

The additional assemblage of raw materials in my works (wood, canvas cloth, paper, pumice, and twine) further transforms a final piece into a symbolic collage expressing the constant movement of people and currency in today's times. Combining these materials with explorations of various color and composition harmonies transports the viewer into a meditative state where complexity, balance, drama, and clarity unite.
