The canvas is decorated with abstract patterns drawn mainly in pink and light blue, with various lines running according to the artist's unique sensibility and imagination and the endless expanse of curves that seem to stretch forever stimulates the imagination and looks like a trail of life stretching freely and expansively.


Each of us has our own worlds, which never completely intersect, but somewhere there is a point of contact and connection. It is a world where everyone knows that there are differences and that we may not always understand each other, and where we can accept others with tolerance.


We tend to immerse ourselves in our own world, but we are all calm. For these of us, so-called "society" is not a comfortable place to be, regardless of the COVID.


At least I paint for myself. I have lived with painting since I was a child, and I don't know what life would be like without it or art. I don't think I am objective about the necessity of art, but we are here today because of the accumulation of culture, and art is part of culture and society. I think art is necessary for human beings to be human. I don't want to stop thinking, I don't want to be affirmed just by being alive, but I also don't want to be an animal that just eats and sleeps.


I am a person who thinks like this. When I am painting, I am absorbed and happy. I like art because it is not logical. It is interesting in that it cannot be verbalized. Of course, there are parts that require logic and explanation.


Sometimes it is interesting to see unexpected shapes that I have drawn while absorbed in my work. I think my paintings are made up of an imbalance between the unconscious and the thoughtful. My paintings are not yet complete. I enjoy painting because it is never finished. I want to continue to paint as many pictures as I like.
