My work is about things that are close to me, which I translate through observation and documentation.

Painting acts like a portal for me to tell the story of feeling trapped in the gap between two countries, where I am a citizen of one, and a resident of another. Finding the resolution among vague memories and vivid life is a journey of reconciling the struggle of disorientation I constantly encounter.

The non-fictional depiction of the accessible surroundings highlights the sensibility required to notice the nuances of expression we often overlook in our daily routine. In order to grasp the tangible connection with the physical world, I try to place my invisible presence in these otherworldly spaces.
