Complex emotions that are often perceived as negative, such as despair, grief, and anguish are fuelsto my artistic process. I try to convey these emotions through the visual universe I invented, though I hope my audience can find a source of hopefulness and self-acceptance to confront their own grim facets. I often allow myself to be lost in my own thoughts, where I feel unbound in creating these fictional stories and characters found in my works, my universe.In this new series that consists of eight watercolor paintings, I tried to re-communicate to myself through sketches I made in the past, as I usually use my sketchbook as a journal where I can document my feelings. Through this archive of my thoughts, the fictional world that I had imagined, I tried to compose pieces of my emotions, while also experimenting with the use of color and intensity to form a new atmosphere in these new works.
