Artist Statement
By observing micro- and macro narratives in my personal life and the social and environmental situation, I translate these observations into visual questions about the relationship between memory and perception. My work represents that memory and perception remain associated, each one works for mutual deepening.  

  Houses in which I lived contain compressed time of my life. The house is not experienced from day to day only, on the thread of a narrative, or in the telling of my own story or someone’s story. My painting of empty rooms tells that memories are so meaningful and so vanity in life at the same time. By drawing the space belong to me and to you in the past or future, I capture my momentary life according to place and store them as abstract images so long on the line of ongoing history of human life. Because I draw them only by my memories, the space becomes an imaginary space, which holds emotional experiences moving past to present or present to future. Also memories in the past came to dwell in a new house as well.
