Artist Statement
I want to explore human psychological matters and personal emotions. The subject matters will be leaning towards negative emotions or energy in daily life which is not miserable but still, it is also not a good experience. It is something that people are used to, unaware of it but it follows us like a shadow that cannot be getting rid of.

Everyone has different side of faces, some we want to show and some we do not want others to see, thus we hide it intentionally or unintentionally, sometimes even confront against it. Many people are not aware of this, let alone openly admitted. Everyone has their character normal and dark side. I would like to describe the struggle and confrontation against the dark side that cannot be seen from the outer appearance.
