I use photographs of discriminative landscapes (space) (e.g. a room decorated with 70s furniture or ruined theater) as an image source for my paintings. The figurative objects are composed with lines, and details of linguistically analyzable information associated with their specific features are replaced with uncertainty, where organic patterns and daubed layer of paint is supplemented. Viewers no longer are able to extract the chain of information through the image. Instead, the painterly intervention of ambiguity inside the landscape enhance the viewer’s psychological boundaries to blur and merge into a different realm of experience.
According to Keith Moxey, recent paintings have been considered as “presence”, where a viewer would directly and physically experience, rather than interpreting as having a contextual or social meaning. This new aspect highlights the great alteration in the social intellection of painting. It changed its framework, which was previously considered to entail a specific and preconditioned meaning, to painting as a relational integration between its physical presence and the viewers’ experience. What this implied was a shift within the system of authority, where participation of the viewer became essential in creating the meaning of painting."
The solo exhibition is now held at the Sprout Curation（29. Sept. 2012 ~ 17. Nov. 2012）. In Sprout Curation, you can purchase his work. Please visit and enjoy the occasion!
