Statement

I find how we swim through everyday in the sea of objects loaded with artificial codes and cultural weights fascinating. Aware or unaware of, every moment, we reject or accept things floating in a vast universe of material and ways in which we make sense of it. I think of everybody as a secret curating agent, playing part in how the world is to be organized, based on simple taste, economic interest, political belief, desire, and whatnots.

My constant mixture of use of geometrical patterns, saccharine colors, miscellaneous objects, and random abstraction is an ongoing experimentation of ‘read things’ versus unreadable things or arrangement. The current use of bizarre unrelatable arrangement or ‘tongue-in-cheek’ repetition is how I experiment the way in which meaning is constructed and individually assorted.
