My pieces are a result of my explorations as a visual interpreter. 

As a child, I always wanted to know how things worked, what 

defined the essence of an object, what its boundaries were, 

and how far such limits could be pushed. This inquisitiveness 

profoundly influences my artwork today. I focus on a concept, 

I dissect it to its bare bones, discover the ultimate truth 

behind it, then I reinvent it. Through my imagination and 

obsessive compulsion, I strive to reveal a unique beauty and 

irony in the seemingly mundane. In my practice, I strip down 

traditional mediums to their essence and employ them in a 

contemporary language. In this way, I breathe new life and 

my own vision into the materials. The resulting works often toe 

the line between the real and visually abstract; what you see 

from afar is completely different from what you see up close. 

A magnified view reveals layers of the details and complexity. 

As a translator, I strive to uncover the ironic beauty of an idea 

and resuscitate it through my experiments with various mediums 

to create a visually surreal and provocative work.
