Artist Statement

 

My artwork is like an act of prayer. It is a process of wishing the absolute essence in people, yet not by competition, nor by a revolution, but through beauty. At least in the artistic world, there exists a moment when our hopes are shared above the chaotic reality. The most complete sharing is possible through beauty because beauty challenges nothing and nothing challenges beauty. Art is a fluid domain of prayers that can help us transcend our everyday lives. Only prayer and meditation seems to me to bring inner peace of mind, because it dissolves any demarcation between myself and other. This demarcation includes not only international borderlines but also the borderline between living and dying.
