On earth, there are limestone caves, where we can find stalactites that contain the primal memories of the earth. When we face this huge scale of time, we come to understand that everyone of us is atiny element of the universe.

My work is anaccumulation of the time that I spent for creation. I paint, carve, and shape the pieces of wood for long periods of time without having any preconceived plan. For me, the process itself is the most important part of my art. I want viewers to recognize the time and the connection with the universe, just like the feelings we could have inside those ancient limestone caves. As we become aware of time itself and our connection with the universe, we truly understand the diversity and the importance of sympathy. Sympathy is the quality that makes us human, and it is what distinguishes us from the anthropoids. This important quality is now lacking in this modern society, full of conflict. I would like to show humanity how to restore sympathy through my artwork.
