In my areas of study, I am particularly interested in oil paintings in relationship with food and objects. Although exploring different mediums such as photography, video art and sculpture, I deeply enjoy painting as my medium of expression. Using colors and different style of brush strokes to present different effect of objects, the ability of the paint creating characteristics of an object fascinates me. Many of my works , for example Ballroom( 2020) are to me self portraits. Usually cropped, many of my works focuses on a area of a whole. Enlarging, alienating the objects, but at the same time using characteristics of the objects like colors or textures. As Oranges, apples, or a enlarged size peanut, I find objects surrounding my daily life, and extract them then interpret them into my works. With emotions and peace I continue in creating more work that are inspired by my surroundings, and growing with my life experience that is ongoing.
