"I seek to create ‘remnants.’ Through an investigation of past history (the remnants), humanity is capable of achieving more efficient means to produce successful outcome in every matter; in other words ‘the remnants’ become a helpful resource and inspiration to its future generations. Through ‘remnants’ one can relive the memory, energy of the past. Also, it becomes a catalyst in promoting diversity, as it serves as constant input of encouragement to each individual’s distinct creativity.

I am deeply interested in surfaces with any signs of texture. And to do so I become quite adventurous with mediums; recently I am working with a synthetic waterproof paper with wet medium, and I’ve also tried making sculptural paintings with canvas as well. For me, texture indicates ‘remnants.’ Like scientists investigating on a surface of a meteorite to figure out its history and origin, I want to produce works that hold a progress of my time and history. Of course they shall be a reflection of my growth and development, but they will also carry much creative inspiration as well. And hopefully my ‘remnants’ will spark a brilliant idea within someone’s head… "
