Artist Statement

I sweep out my thoughts from my mind and pour those images into my work. This process of “sweeping out” makes very dense and crowded images as various forms of doodling, and it directly shows what I have inside me—even every detail of my private memories.

This process of showing everything in my mind, paradoxical as it may seen, is to empty my mind. This is related to the very basic philosophical question: “Who am I”? Or, “Who are we”?  I repeat this practice by making numerous drawings, a process I have named “Designing Egos.”

My cartooned images have a value of anonymity that opens the possibility of sympathy between the viewers and my narratives, hopefully transcending race, age, sex and other cultural values. So my images are accessible allegories of a multi-vocal world. With these images, I make large-scale wall drawings, animation, and mixed-media drawings on paper.

 On my drawing ball (three-dimensional pencil drawing on crumpled paper), folded lines on a crumpled surface provides for interesting storylines, as this visual format lies between sculpture and two-dimensional drawings. Viewers can travel around in the crumpled structure by following tiny clones that I have designed.

 Also, I develop large-scale wall drawings, which are designed to completely cover the wall of a room with my images. The wall drawing typifies the way my drawings morph into the environment itself. These large-scale drawings become experiences for the viewers, allowing them to take part in my work. When I make my drawings on paper and hang them on the wall, for example, the wall seemingly acts as a mere support for the drawings. However, after making drawings on the wall directly, those drawings begin to change into parts of the wall environment itself. This alteration illustrates a vital connection between place and my ideas.
