Relaxation: Man and Tree (休)
The Chinese pictograph 休 (Heu) consists of two characters: 人 (Yin) signifying a person, and 木 (Mok) signifying a tree. When combined, they signify a person leaning on a tree, which means taking a break or a rest. The spirit and material of my work come from nature. It is not we who protect nature, but nature that protects our sanctity. A tree is a material that appeals to everyone because it represents nature. By giving life to trees in my paintings, I feel that I am alive with them.
