Flowers have the most outstanding figurative beauty of the object, which embodies the human image as a harmonious creature of nature, and the process of creation and extinction has long been an artistic material, likened to the life of man circulating in nature. For me, flowers are also a pleasing medium for painting splendor and beauty. The work of showing and expressing me through the opening of flowers is very interesting, and it is the work that gives me a lot of thought about the existence and value of flowers. Some people feel a loss of emotion from the instinct hidden behind the colorful back and the way they fall. It is a process of recording and striving for loss with the passion created in the absence, and it is an attempt to create a different perspective on the world, beyond the reenactment of nature. I am expressing the nature of human beings by the appearance of a flower. Flowers that form harmony of the order of nature have connotations of human appearance and have a ambivalent characteristic with both beauty and ugliness. My works start with a real flower figure. The way it works also sought to pursue a two-way style of expression by mixing abstract and realistic features.
