Statement

I am enchanted to create an interior space having a lot of colorful details. However, I want to add dramatic aspect, so I put a cloud and plant in the center to nourishment inside this artificial environment. My whole purpose is to try to re-contextualize nature and human's relationship of saying that the only possibility is nature inside the human beings.

This is a piece that I made in the summer after traveling to Latin America, titled Lo Siento, in Spanish it means, “sorry.” This work basically talks about a subtle interior to symbolize the human occupation. The green, plants in the picture, however, has some dramatic fantasy, which talks about how the land (environment) right now is a very harsh and endangered species. I think this piece helps to understand the correlation between land and human beings.
