Confusion of Shapes
“When I begin to work on a painting, i go back to the primary visual element that form shapes, the dot, and to experience the possible transformation which (dot) might be exposed.
During the process, each painting simultaneously depicts different visual results and situations: stillness and movement; density and vacuum; creation and disappearance.
In this coexistence of opposites, shapes experience confusion and constant change. A shape faces an existential crisis and deep within it lays nothingness.
And so whenever a shape stabilizes and manifests itself in one form, the nothingness within it rebels and reflects its image in another form – or no-form at all.
Those shapes reflect the actual situation which I live, since I left home.”
