Since I was a kid, I love the soil, plants, insects, and animals. So I have watched and touched shapes and mysteries of living things in the tiny tiny world with lasting interest and surprise in nature. My major at high school and the university was agriculture. I was a strawberry farmer for 9 years before I stating art activities while traveling.
It was very natural for me to make necessities such as clothes or hats for myself and my family by my hands in living as a farmer in a peaceful forest, producing our own food, and playing with plants and insects in the garden. My mother and grandmother always enjoy sewing for necessities and it made our life bright and colorful. My grandfather made wooden boxes and carved them. He also weaved baskets and mats with plants and used them in our life. I was grown up in that circumstance. Therefore my artwork comes from life, nature, and culture that was taken over by people.
Dynamic carves of plants, graceful roundness of fruits, water flow, ripples, and drops of water, shapes of small neighbors living underground, warm soft shape of human bodies… Ripe swell and pits, coming and going, melting and swirling… These “eros” of lives attract me a lot.
Always opening ourselves to something but ourselves, accepting others… we would like to travel like that, learn local culture where we are carried and make expression coming from our life with nature.
