I have some questions I would like viewers of my art to ask themselves — I want them to be more aware of their own existence and experience. My artworks are more emotional than objective reflections of the society around me. Standing in front of a large ocean, one becomes silent and numb. Similarly, standing in front of so much social unrest scares me. It sometimes makes me question my own existence. As I seek to escape the burning anxieties within, the black I use in different tones stands as a metaphor for internal turmoil. Transparency is also a very important motif, as it makes the art subtle and vulnerable. Treatment, color, support and more all cumulatively create a narrative of their own, which speaks of my insecure self and the uncertainty of existence. In my work, personal tragedy often fluidly becomes inseparable from societal oppression, and my personal feelings thus get documented in my works. I also often use my writings in my art, and believe these are deeply personal and integral enough to make the art more intense, real and closer to revealing myself through untold stories. I also like to maintain a little bit of dark humor or ambiguity, just like how reality can never show us all the angles of one situation.
