Statement
I’m fascinated with faces.
Behavior of water and cloud, petals, and grains of trees,,, these eye catching part inspires its whole picture. The face itself begins the story. I think that there could be a face in every natural matter.
My working process starts from where to look for such a face. And I develop the motif which touches my heart.
I shape metal with hammering and chasing. Each stroke marks a story of its expression, atmosphere, and emotion.
Between my work and a receiver, a new story is completed there. Diversity of this face, be it animal, human or abstract is the factor that attracts me, and it is the key to my work.
