Artist Statement

Art is truth from raw reality. Raw realities are not only nice and clean things but also, filthy and nasty things. No matter what, raw realty is beautiful itself. And I focus on ordinary things such as milk, water, glass bottles, soil, sounds and body. They are very commonplace, but I think I could reach one of truth through them. Anything could become an Art.

Besides, Art has no boundaries, no limits and it is just like the Universe. Sometimes, Artist should be empty minded and body, and then feel emotion, spirits, physically feelings and nature. Artist should stand for freedom and love.

My blood is running with loves, joys, pains, sorrows, enjoyments, sex, violences, hopes and sin in my veins and the heart is beating.

Embodying truth is my Art.
