Recent Work: "Led by the Light" (2017-present)

Artist Statement

The body of my artwork, “Led by the Light”, visualizes a ‘beacon of hope’ through my own journey of life by portraying symbolic imageries from nature such as sky, water, light and dark.  As humans, we strive to find who we are and where we belong on earth. These integral questions in our minds through this journey allow us to utilize the natural world to touch the depths of our hearts that desire to seek the answers and understand our true identities.  As the viewers cast their own imagination upon the images, these images are, in turn, transformed by impression from their own past and present and eventually arrive at their destinies.  

In order to capture its richness of the ethereal beauty on each stage of the journey, I work on a large number of paintings in a series, mainly focused on pure emotions of sky and its reflections on water.  As nature begins to lose its concrete meaning, it starts expressing the essence of the image, its color, its smell, its movement, and its atmosphere.  Herein, the realities of sky, water, and earth are transformed into spiritual beings, intimate and personal.  Such nature echoes the heartbeats of the Creator as a compassionate and loving father and speaks of hope and redemption, renewal, peace and serenity.

I believe art has the power to enlighten the eyes of viewers’ hearts to see ordinary nature as a new revelation.  This journey into the divine realities of nature invites us to tap into the essential core of our own being.  My paintings are meant to encourage the viewers to have these spiritual experiences through their own personal perceptions and interpretations.
