Artist Statement

The fiber art pieces I create are not traditional images of landscape as seen from the external environment. They are atmospheric, abstract images mainly focused on expressing a sense of place, or a mood or feeling. My works also involve many dilemmas such as life and death, sorrow becoming pleasure, and adoration versus loathing. When creating, I often take a moment to juggle the values and anticipate the consequences. When I struggle with my life, I am drawn toward Nature, which does not deceive me. It is always genuine, sincere, and tranquil, yet solid; that inspires me with an unabashedly beautiful and poignant dialogue. Thus I combine abstractions, geometrical constructions and transformations in the composition and design of my artwork.

To begin, I weave a web and create a grid, and then push the limitations of that grid by adapting and resurfacing with fiber and non-fiber material. On this base, I create the image in contrasts: transparency and opacity, defined edges and amorphous shapes, hairy textures and smooth surfaces, matte and shiny, intense color and subtle hue, light and shadow.

In the recent works, I have tried to disclose the process of transformation from an original source of design to the significantly condensed final images. I love weaving, dyeing and manipulating fiber materials. By combining fiber with contrasting materials, I attempt to portray the beautiful harmony of fiber art.
