I am merging my own impressions of fashion and architecture into art. Instead of pursuing functional demands, a desire to be an architect or a fashion designer, has more responded to aesthetic aims within a deliberate practice that sets out its own visual conversation. Whether reinterpreting existing garments or buildings, abstracting an image itself from practical construction, or audaciously defying any typical usage of material, I embrace any kind of medium, mainly sculpture, as a platform to present my suggestive notion based on an investigation of a complex relationship between a human and a certain surrounding. Sometimes making sense, sometimes just creating a form, I am intrigued by the moment of unexpected collision when two or more materials are combined in a nonsensical way, so the tension which runs through every part of a piece resonates with the present space and a viewer's empathy.
