Portfolio > CRUELLY-GO-ROUND

Among the beautiful colors and forms of nature, there are violent scenes associated with survival. Life seems to be intertwined with death, and while they seem to contradict each other, it is a necessary balance that is maintained in nature.
I observe and describe these cruel scenes with a desire to live and love all things around me as naturally as I can. As a visual artist, I have seen and felt the world through my forms and colors, and I only wish to express the utmost truth.
My artwork has his/her own life, independent and mature. I can not fix ideas, I do not desire it. It is up to the viewer to create their unique meaning. Perhaps, the viewer can become a philosopher, through my artwork.

*Cruelly-Go-Round is a new painting series, started in year 2011. Medium is oil paint and gold leaf on wood.
