What do you want people to do or feel when they encounter your creations?
"What more could an artist ask for than to evoke the “Wow!” response? In addition to that gestalt effect, I love researching a subject’s history, symbolism, etc, all of which can be embedded as layers for viewers to unpack. Not to mention, those totally unscripted and unintended interpretations from an audience are equally fascinating and valid.
I also feel there’s a strong sense of place in all my work. That could be a site-specific installation that transforms a public place by literally immersing people, or perhaps it’s an intimate painting or origami sculpture that inspires viewers’ imaginations through a sense of mystery and nostalgia."
