Artist Statement

My work inspired by past experiences is largely influenced by two main perspectives.

First, my experience of starting training in college and working as an expert cultural property repair technician has changed my view of the subject. Even if the object is not a living creature, I focus on the emotions and stories contained in the object and space I see, as well as the energy they possess.

The second inspiration is from the emotions I experience while taking photos of artworks and archival objects in my studio. The process of being photosensitive and developing them in the dark room to create a still images feel like a magical moment, akin to summoning. In the moment when the light reaches me and the subject in the same space, I strongly feel a connection to the subject. Such an invisible relationships between me and the subject is formed through the shared experience of light.

As such, the way of "seeing subjects" evolved through past experiences has transformed into the way of "feeling the invisible(Unseen) energy(echoes).”
