Artist's Statement

Cubic Inception

Within stacks of discarded waste, a glimmer of metal sparks an idea; even a disposed aluminum food container can become something entirely new.

The transformative process begins, and cutting, flattening, and reshaping begin to birth new forms in various shapes and sizes.

As these shapes are composed on a canvas, the arrangements create disorderly yet harmonious compositions, in my eyes reminiscent of a city. This depiction is unlike the perspective that we are accustomed to, but an abstracted perspective resonant with what we can see when we are above it all, like the glimmers of a city we see when we look down from an airplane.

These were the thoughts that came to my mind when I was alone in my studio, crouched on the floor, painting, hammering, cutting, scattering, composing, and gluing cubic pieces on canvas, which I would like to share with you as you explore my artwork.
