Artist's Statement

As an artist who expresses ideas, I strive to find methods of execution that best illustrate and transcend my committed concept, which enables me to experiment with mediums that I wouldn't normally consider.

As an immigrant who arrived in the United States 15 years ago, living in both rural and urban cities, I am constantly fascinated by my surroundings. I have never stopped being inquisitive and curious about the human conditions that surround me, especially the process of change and how circumstances affect the decisions and choices that we make, leading to the different roads that we found ourselves on.

But despite the different paths that free will can lead us to, my work is also the acknowledgment of the cyclical nature and perpetual-ness of the human life, where a certain human experiences are more or less universal.

Bio/Resume

Since 2000, my artwork has been shown in Seattle, Washington; Portland, Oregon; San Diego; Madison, Wisconsin; Burlington, Vermont; Summit, New Jersey; New York City; Berlin, Germany; Amsterdam, The Netherlands; and in the January 2003 issue of New American Paintings. In 2004, I was awarded Joan Mitchell Foundation MFA grant. In 2007, my work was shown at the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum for a group show, The Photograph as Canvas, and have completed my first public art project, 16 Windows, at the New Lots Avenue Station on the L line, commissioned by the New York MTA Arts for Transit Program Permanent Art projects, which was featured in the 12/27/07 edition of New York Sun and the new book Contemporary Glass. I have since been chosen as finalist for two other public art projects. Recently, I served as juror/panelist for the MTA Arts for Transit Program Permanent Art Projects.
