Artist Statement

I  was always both mentally and physically hungry. I could satisfy my hunger by dining with my housemates. Each moment in the kitchen makes me aware that I am alive. I observe everything very keenly, and I long to capture every moment. My drawings portray not only the moments that I experienced, but are both the witnesses and the objects that I interacted with.

I always have my digital camera in the kitchen with me because it is very well-suited to capturing the moment. To depict a moment, I choose a drawing which I can produce quickly. Half-consciously, half-unconsciously, I include some images from the photo while others leaving out. In this way, I draw the things that interact with me at the moment. Ultimately, I install some or all of my drawings together on a wall. My installation resembles a visual diary in which every moment is accumulated.

To extend my work, I want to observe people – including myself – in the city. Most of all, as a starving artist, I want to see what, how, how long, why, where and when people eat. I believe that by portraying people while they are eating, I will be able to capture their presence. And, to me, presence equals life.
