Statement

"Material, shape, dimension, structure… they all express my philosophy, they all comprise my philosophy… Things that I want to express wonder around my head. Finally, they materialize as something solid after I decide how they should be expressed. The time comes, and I may see a solid figure that has not only the shape but also material and dimension. I use mixed media, but mainly metal for my work. And also, each work has suitable technique for the image. I aim at making my work by my hand, try not to use machine as much as possible, because I want to show how a person's mind works."
