Soft monument 1 2008, Acrylic on canvas

Unlike the usual solid monuments, several paintings depict them as something cushiony and indefinite. The inscriptions on them are mostly worn and illegible or covered as well. Looking into the almost invisible writings, they are no more than meaningless slogans which are ill fit for the monuments. As a scathing satire for the absurdity and recklessness of human beings, the finger humans strive to peruse the texts as if the trivial slogans had a great deal of worth or particular secrets

Fishing the flat 2007, Acrylic on canvas

The finger-like characters are a type of visionary and futuristic human beings, with an excessive revolution or regression in the very end organs (hands or fingers) as subjects for impulsive and reckless behaviors. Though looking odd, they manage and control their world as Creator does. They create pseudo-nature imitating the real one, and make up an artificial paradise on their own through an array of actions like cutting, pasting ,sewing, etc.

Undone 2 , 2012, Acrylic on canvas

One of my friends who is a teacher, posed to her elementary schoolers a question What makes a painting good? A variety of ideas were answered and I had a chance to see the papers. They said, it needs sincerity, personal characteristics, or it should be something the painter likes. Among them was a noticeable answer that perfectly fits into my idea. It says that a good painting is completed with no give-up of ones own idea.

It sounds quite simple, but that has never been easy to me. The depiction of an idea as exactly as an artist wants it to be, seems to be far from being easy, due to the inherent elusiveness. Sometimes I feel like taking a detour but it always ends up with restarting from the scratch. No matter how much time it takes, it seems desirable to face a problem squarely. To fulfill my own needs like scratching an itchy spot, is one of my reasons of painting.
