Artist Statement

The dead trees used in this piece were discarded on a street corner in Manhattan. I collected the bark of those trees to make objects and covered them with plastic.
Humans depend on nature for our lives, but we sometimes fail to face that fact. We only see it dimly.

My work is mainly made of scrap wood and concrete.
Wood is a symbol of nature and concrete is a symbol of man-made objects.

Humans, myself included, destroy and manage nature to make our lives more comfortable.
Like food wrapped in plastic wrap.
This work represents the domination of nature by humans. And there is a small space between the tree and the concrete.
This is a message that "there must be a certain distance between nature and human beings. It is a kind of social distance.
Humans should pay more attention to nature.
