I could have recognized that I’m such a tiny as a particle in the creator’s mother – nature when I stood in nature. I feel like to ask myself constantly that who  I am in surrounded limited time and indefinite future. The path that I walked, will walk…and  can’t see that the way  faraway  now on. I only could see the way  that I live now. Like a reality, but there is no saying for the future, I could recognize that  have  limitations of space and time through anxiety of existence, endless experienced inner conflict with isolation.

As a figure of speech for the ‘Plato’s Allegory of the Cave’ Eventually,  I dream the ‘Invisible Land’ to escape from the inside of cave through the process of the recognition of the light. The ‘Invisible Land’ that is looking to the idea of light which is ‘Goodness’ emblem amalgamation of the true fusion through the communication that break the barrier of the culture, individual human’s ideology and race.

My painting is focused on series that is related the understanding incomplete human being through deep introspection and making self objectively in actual world .
