Artist Statement

I created my typography and a new language by dismantling the essential elements of a language. Learning is not a prerequisite in my language. My language, which cannot be read with the eyes or spoken by the mouth like letters, has bestowed a new role within the framework of art. It is intact emotion and feeling. That's how my language is used. Color and texture are consonants and vowels. And together, they represent a new meaning. Concealment in my works also articulate imagination, interpretation, thoughts, meanings, or moods. Consequently, these definite and indefinite elements in my works are harmonized and tell stories. This is my language and the way I communicate as an artist.


 I like the fact that my work is like a secret.  No one really knows what I am truly thinking, so it gives me the freedom to put my real self into my works of artwork. This freedom also applies to viewers. Through the concept of concealment, I open a conversation and suggest for viewers to discuss and think about my works in their own ways. I don’t  want my viewers to have certain answers for my works. My works are not only conveying meanings, the phrases, but also feelings about the meanings. Rather than deeply thinking about what are hidden messages in my works, I hope people see my works just as they are, and feel them. Instead of guides for how to see and read my works, I chose for people to imagine infinitely and freely, to be honest with their feelings, to reflect on my works with their own experiences, and to see it in their own point of view.
