Artist Statement

 I am interested in all types of people, and what you can learn about them from their outward appearance. The body records a person's life as external expressions, like scars and wrinkles. It represents the person's living environment, habits and health status. This was especially true for the face, as it is the part of our body that reflects the best part of a person’s individuality. It changes while continuing to live as an unfinished map of human life. Facial expressions are like a secret language that a person uses to both hide and show his or her true feelings. During conversations, expressions sometimes tell more than the words people use. By studying facial expressions, an observant person can understand something of hidden meanings and true feelings. Using this idea, I decided to focus on the faces of people for my paintings.
