Statement : 

“Drawing on personal experience and inspired by human anatomy and psychoanalytic theory, I explore desire as my main subject matter, alongside the concept of life and death.

In my theory, all things stem from desire, and it varies depending on how the person’s desire appears. The human figure is a recurring theme in my work. My obsession with the human body started when I was young, as I experienced a rare body condition and medical examination was part of my daily life.

Human desire and body is related to birth till death, and it is in a continuous loop. The physicality and fragility of the human body is the inevitable element of life. I’m experimenting with embodying the sublimation of the desire into perpetuity.”
