I define myself as a conceptual artist.

With multi-approachings in sculpture, painting, installation, video, and performance, my art practice emphasizes the connection and an intricate relationship between interior architecture–the living space where feelings are transferred–and the human body–the vessel, home of the self. I want my creative process and artworks reflect a deeper understanding of oneself through naratives and story telling. They are visual metaphors of emotions and subconsciousness, expressions of connection, love, desire, and trauma. 

Both literal and metaphorical, the intention of my artworks is to open and invite viewers into my personal consciousness through fragments of lived experiences and narratives–a space embodied by memories of love, loss, and belongings. I believe it is essential to embrace the fragile balance between devastation and happiness, which borders the extremes of human sensibilities.
