 I create paintings using images associated with words, people I have never met, and places I have never visited as motifs. I do this as a way of resisting what is visually remembered and what is assumed.


Paintings originally have the role of conveying the recorded landscape in a straightforward manner. However, I believe that the most suitable medium for depicting fiction is not painting, but literature. Only the written word, which has no visual information, can create the fiction that each of us thinks of without being confined by time or space.


In this context, I create paintings because I am convinced that the question "Where are you? The divergence from reality that appears when standing in front of fiction is a characteristic of painting, and it serves to connect the world of fiction, which is "not here," with reality, which is "here. By creating paintings, I aim to connect these two ends.
