Following describes the process of my art making in these years. They reflect my philosophy in which various rules are breaking free to each other, resulting in the confusion of physical dimensions in my work.
I often draw my drawings without specific figures in mind. Then I choose one of my drawings to construct into object. And again, I draw on the surface of it. It doesn't make it into a drawing. Honestly, I don't think there's a reason it has to be.
I tend to observe the process of drawing and selecting my own work. My own drawing stimulates my imagination. The drawing itself doesn't know what it's going to be faced with when it becomes a three dimensional form. Sometimes the drawing calls upon this request.
When the drawing takes form and has been painted white, I draw on the smoothed surface. The goal is the drawing but like stated before, it does not ask for it.
The accurate relation is very complex. There's a behind story which has been created that the drawing does not know about.
