About

Overview



I focus on the interpretation of memory, observing its properties concerning my self- reflection of repeatedly uprooting from home. By dissecting its multi-faceted layers and stripping away the confinement of time, I try to capture the sentiments of longing and drifting by portraying static images in a fluid state.

 

The series of prints presented are inspired by pivotal moments in my life. Operating between painting and photography, the dim, dreamlike qualities in my works induces a feeling of transmutation and haze. The viewers are invited to immerse themselves and recall their own pasts.
