I need a bit of tranquility as an artist living in a city. My previous works are attempts to get some sort of quietness in the city, no matter how limited it is. There is, however, an endless amount of it in nature, where you can feel the calming energy of woods and streams. I have visited forests so many times that I feel as if their fresh air stayed in my body. Drawing on canvas from my memory of the fresh air in my studio is a process enjoyable to me.

They also serve as a gentle indictment against frameworks and paradigms.
