My emphasis lies on capturing the fleeting attractions that often are taken for granted.
Intrigued by the Japanese worldview of wabi-sabi, or the aesthetic of impermanence and transience, my artwork centers around celebrating the ephemerality of everyday life. With this perspective in mind, my emphasis lies on capturing the fleeting attractions that often are taken for granted. I aim to bring the whimsical essence to enrich the representation of the subject matter.
I approach the method of art-making by elaborating color, form and structure using loose brushstrokes, as inspired by Wayne Thiebaud, William Merritt Chase and Claude Monet. This technique allows me to connect with the subject matter by expressing my gratitude towards their existence.
