Looking at every object without thinking about its name and use, anyone will be impressed with the beauty of figure and abstraction hidden in general objects. The abstraction might already be actualized completely in every concrete object around us. Things I draw do not own a name. They are simply just ‘things’. I hope viewers can fully feel the property of matter in my drawing. I’m interested in practical and solid force in the existential material world. It is the world felt with the whole body, which is not to be seen as materialistic interest though. The real reason I lay my interest upon materials is that I believe the materials can be a key to the metaphysical world beyond the materials. I think, reaching spirituality through materials is a relatively safer inductive method. In such sense, what I draw is one of ‘signs’ or possibly, ‘letters’. Music is played as I create a solid composition and arrange the colors neatly with the absolutely materialistic objects. The music is heard by heart, creates a private space and opens a door to the metaphysical world. At the very moment, the objects are symbolized to lead us into the world beyond the materials.
