On my solo exhibition -
Faceless figures as nobody, in other words, as anybody.
I am strongly drawn to such ambiguous portraits.
In this ambiguity lies, among others, the reality.
The fact that the ambiguity represents myself is accompanied by the theme "relation" when I do my art work.
While my works strike the viewers as pop and catchy, I see the flatness I aim for in pursuit of the nature of painting beyond graphical expressions.
