ARTIST'S STATEMENT

Light and Color

Light fascinates me. I developed a fascination for all kinds of light, such as the sun, candles, lamps, and fire. The reflections of any of these sources draw my mind into an illusory world or a window to my mind, where I have found a pallet of powerful colors that independently and simultaneously create “illusions” of everyday life. By transposing these images onto a canvas, my work will remind you of the natural state of nature through the human body, fruits and flowers. In order to accomplish this, gradation has become an integral part of my work as a tool to emphasize the darkness and the brightness of light.

My painting begins with selecting colors. Colors have different meanings in various cultures and the meaning of colors can change as time goes by. Many of the effects of color on our moods may be the result of social and psychological associations with a particular color. These associations vary from person to person and from culture to culture, making it difficult to define the meaning of color within themselves. I hope the colors in my painting can bring up the moment of their own beautiful memories that people have.
