The human mind is as clear or vague as the stars in the night sky. Those stars,
hundreds of millions of light years away, are starry on my eyes. I try to reach
out to the bright stars and grab a handful, but only empty hands cut through
the air. The shooting star represents a hope to get rid of my darkness, and the
Milky Way that huddles together represents my overwhelming heart.
In his Own Words:
I believe if I can understand my inner self, I will be able to understand other people. A step toward its understanding begins by seeing the inner-side through Art.
I have attempted to visualize the human nature since when I was in military service in South
Korea. I’m very scared of war, like everyone, of course. But with me, this fear is more concrete, since I am a citizen of South Korea, which is constantly threatened with war by the other Korea in the north. I have always lived with this pressing fear of war, even though I have no direct experience of it. This life in South Korea naturally made me wonder about violence, conflicts between humans, and now not only violence but also other human nature are included in my aesthetic research category.
