Artist Statement

My work is research and information based. I use investigational logic to create large scale drawings that diagram imaginary journeys.  These explorations deal with issues such as the origin of materials or resources, relocation and collision of crossing different timeline, myth and travel. My works questions how these factors are played out in physical and psychological space, and between tamed and untamed worlds.

My background is a traditional Mongolian Painting (Thanka) which calls upon rigorous skills and passion to go through the time consuming meditative process of creating. After my studies in Mongolia, I advanced my education in Berlin and in New York to incorporate conceptual western art practices in my work.

My newest body of work is rooted in geography, identity and an imaginary landscape. My interactive sculptural piece “Antipode Chess” (2013) is based on a series of recorded movements from a chess game between my son and me. I use these movements to define coordinates that overlay my charcoal, jarosite and dragon’s blood pigmented drawings. 

The drawings also incorporate my expanded archive of fossil drawings created at the American Museum of Natural History in New York. Following my path from Mongolia to New York, I recombine both a real and imaginary landscape to connect the movements of my son with the antipode of Mongolia, which is the South American country, Chile.
