We all have different manifolds and possibilities.
However, the “I” that is here at this moment is just one “I” that has been chosen by “myselves” from these various possibilities. Even at this moment, unchosen selves are falling out of my life. I am the person I am today, after a dialogue with myselves.
That is the image I have in my mind.
I used to be involved in theater.
The actors use their imaginations and bodies, lending and borrowing strength from the staff and other performers, to create a life on stage that is different from their own under the stage, and to make a world different from the real world rise up.
By taking advantage of the perspectives and thoughts that I have gained through my involvement in theater, I hope that I will be able to touch upon the many possibilities and invisible stories that people have, and to think about the richness of the human imagination, by establishing in the image of myself those who are overlooked.
With these thoughts at the core of my work, I would like to continue to explore honest expression while somehow believing in my own potential at the time.
My representative series is “monodramatic,” which expresses the multifacetedness, potential, and imagination of a person using a monologue as a motif, and my other series is “loose polyhedron,” which depicts human emotions in a typological way based on an “emotional balance chart. The other series is “loose polyhedron,” a typological depiction of human emotions based on a “balance chart of emotions,” “loop pieta,” inspired by her own marriage and using Michelangelo’s Pieta as a motif, and “vein,” which originated from the artist’s introspective feelings. He is currently working on a zine project called “WENDY&JACK” with his wife, a painter and illustrator, as well as creating works using sampling and 3D scanning.
