I enjoy playing on the edge of recognition. When my own memory blurs my impression of everyday objects and places, I find myself going through a journey trying to remember what things are. What I have accustomed to in daily life become unfamiliar then reemerge as new forms. The insecurity of losing memories intertwines with the joy of rediscovering them. I consider the process of painting an active participant in this back and forth learning experience. I respond to my thoughts visualized on the painted surface. I let the visual traces contextualize the whole image. My works lie in between representation and abstraction. I utilize the psychological potential of this unstable situation. Abstract forms situate themselves in an imagined environment of color and shapes. Together they give out clues to invite a fun experience of figuring out and rediscovering.
