Even though people pursue the ideal, they live in sympathy with the reality. Since a conflict of the Real and the Ideal is inevitable, we live in the agony of choices. This conflict makes Ego and cuts it off from the outside world. The severance always prevents the ego from communicating to outside. I painted glass, nature, indoor space to depict the confined space of ego. Unlike the silent outside of glass, the inside is unstability. It is showing that the cause of alienation and instability between the real and the ideal, in fact, exists not outside but inside. The isolated ego is existence adopting to the reality with a passive attitude. This space represents the limit but also includes the infinite possibility. By placeing symbols indicating strong sill to communicate to the outside world, I tried to express my wish to recover the communicate, and moreover, to accomplish the harmony.
