I paint 14 hours a day every day. Canvas is my life and everything. What sustains my life, which is filled with difficulties and pains, is my love for simplicity and the happiness from it. Happiness is not complicated but simple, and can only be achieved by giving up greed. In my work, multi-layered colors of 'love and happiness' is revealed through the 'pain' of scraping pigments off the canvas.
The empty chairs symbolize the desire for a place where anyone wants to climb. It is an empty space on the outside, but full of invisible desires. Similarly, crowns, bow ties, and shoes are gorgeous on the surface, but there is a desire behind them and a sense of competition. This duality is another mask of Persona that everyone wears. VACANCY is a metaphor for my past, present and future.
