My work is about states of being, it’s not to be explained in words, verbal language. I like the viewers to be participants - to feel their own emotions, experiences, imagination - when they confront my work. This is one of the reasons why many of my works don’t have titles, I only number them, so the viewer can decide.
The time staking process of my mixed media works consists of many layers. In each layer, there is my story, my feelings, my nature. I mount dried acrylics, medium covering various paper, marble powder, acrylic mediums and many more. I experiment with all kinds of materials and styles to expand my range of expression.
Even though many of my works are on canvas, I create sculptural, 3D works, with many different textures, layer by layer. It is important for me to incorporate colors that change subtly every time one looks at it.
The vision beyond my work is what gives it’s meaning, it is a reflection of me.
My works have been extensively exhibited and in demand from Seoul, Korea and Hong Kong, China to California and New York.
I currently serve as the Teaching Assistant of Larry Poons Studio at the Art Students League of New York City. Previously, I worked with fellow abstract painter, William Scarf.
