ARTIST STATEMENT
...Combining the desire to get closer to an object that I am attracted to and thinking about it in a time other than the present...

"I want to draw it, because it is beautiful" is same as "I want to be like that, because it looks cool" or "I want to sing, because it seems fun." This is the first condition of "the desire to get closer to an object that I am attracted to."

The second condition, "thinking about it in a time frame other than the present," is the process and result of a creation derived from an attractive object and the capturing of it on a flat surface. The process of composition, extraction of colors, and the reconstruction of them helps one to detach from the obvious standards of everyday life and start thinking in a time that is out of the ordinary. The result is a creation that includes more "confusion" than "comprehensibility," keeping in mind that "confusion" helps one think in a time frame not of the present. In our busy, everyday lives, we often can't think this way, but it's like how you are transported when you think about a favorite place, movie, or music - I believe this artistic process is similar.
