"The way I create in my art is to let go of the physical control by controlling my consciousness. What does painting and expression mean to me? It's a tool to get in touch with your inner self. Through painting, I open up my inner self, which is hidden within, in front of me. Draw in as much coincidence as you can. Incorporate it into your expression of self. Contrast something from the unconscious with the techniques of self-consciousness. We want to create harmony. Find on the screen things that have already been primed there, like colors, stains and scratches. In response, I draw lines and add color. In the midst of the chaos, something is born. In response, I fiddle with it. I erase, draw, erase, and draw again. and so on. My paintings are an improvisation of myself and the world. I don't want to show it as a finished picture. A sense of beauty that has just been rewritten in me. I would like to continue to transmit my sense of beauty to the world in a raw way."
