Artist statement

I am an interdisciplinary artist whose practice is comprised of the exploration of nature and plausibility in contemporary society, and hinges on all kinds of double meanings. The duality of my approach is reflected by my life spent in Asia and North America, in the pairing of disparate culture such as contemporary Japanese pop with Renaissance/Baroque painting methods and ideologies. Combining fields of painting, sculpture and installation, my work emphasizes process in terms of creativity, production and collaboration, and attempts to approach an understanding of context and environment. Its primary characteristic is that I see production as a process of putting myself in a particular place, and then understanding it.
