Living in the Millennial age, characterized by the rapid expansion of media and technology, as well as the blurring of disciplines and boundaries, has opened up diverse avenues for understanding contemporary art and social reality. The process of creating art has become fluid, transcending traditional divisions. Through my studies in art, I have gained new insights and developed a fresh perspective. In light of the multifaceted nature of social reality and contemporary art, my exploration of abstract expression has been centered around the concepts of "emotion" and "relationship."

In my artistic practice, I strive to create a narrative that is intentionally vague and ambiguous, employing a diverse range of materials and conducting thorough research. By embracing abstraction and transformation, I aim to elicit complex emotional responses and establish nuanced relationships between elements. My creative inspiration draws from various sources, primarily my personal perceptions and understanding of the world. Human emotions, dreams, and intimate relationships serve as the foundation of my artistic expression. I find liberation from the confines of specific media types and their associated limitations. Through techniques such as painting, collage, layering, and the utilization of diverse abstract mediums, I enhance the potential for metaphorical and abstract expression. This, in turn, allows for the generation of ambiguity within the spatial and narrative dimensions of my artwork.

untitledAt the end of today's quarantine, we decided to paint two paintings in a collaborative and altered format. Experimental attempts are made for one person to draw first and another to change subjectively. Such a sequential order changes the emotions of the creators in the original place, splitting in cooperation and merging in splitting at the same time. Embodies the two people, intimate relationship, companionship, and gaming
