I am a painter. I would like to paint living things and convey energy metamorphosis. But, why is a painting dry? Why isn’t a painting alive? So, I was inspired to start “Alive Painting,” my current work. Combining the energy of movement and vibrant colors, I bring pictures to life. I depict the resonance between shapes and textures by using different types of liquids, each with a unique characteristic. How the materials interact with each other is influenced by external factors, such as wind, sound, humidity, gravity, time…etc. In recent years, I have performed solo live acts using a colour-organ system called “Fluid2wave”. This system uses soundtracks and sound effects to accompany the digital projection of the live color painting. My work of art is an abstract metaphor for various aspects of nature through the use of colors and fluidity, and attempts to celebrate moments of beauty amidst the ephemerality of life. Life has different wavelengths. So, I create works of art with various materials and forms of media to capture each passing moment. I’m interested in the beauty of the boundary between 2 colors. To me, the meeting of 2 colors represents the dance of Yin and Yang.
