What are the major themes you pursue in your work?
Nature and natural sciences inspire me. When studying at the Art Academy, I did my written thesis about art and science. I want to understand the hard but beautiful rules of energy and matter. I deeply admire all unbelievable life in this world of chaos and order. In my art, this invisible world of science seems to unite my works. In paintings, I am trying to present an inaccurate passing moment, for example, in wire-sculpting the emptiness of matter. Recently, geometric patterns seem to appear in my paintings. I like to work in an expressive way, but the target is clear for me. Impression should be fine both from a distance and at close range.
