Artist Statement

Art is a battlefield
Where I fight with myself

Even though wanting to escape
But can not

Wandering in the darkness
With a pain in my heart

In that darkness
When a drop of light shines
An entity that could not be seen by eyes
Takes form and becomes artwork.

Then there is a fight waiting again
An eternal battlefield
Surviving in the battlefield is a mission
