Artist statement

My works are based on showing the trace of humanity by using artificial objects such as sculpted roses, tiles, light bulbs or invented devices.

In 2011, the nuclear plant explosion in Japan reminded me of the fact that human can cause horrible destruction. Since then, the theme is more focused on the light and shadow of our existence.

The total series form the praise of existence which reconciles two conflicting principles: black and white, male and female, old and new, life and death… as I believes our universe consists in the mixture and balance of all these elements.
