—  message—

Things flow with time, and you slip into the afternoon of life...

Face and posture are marked.
 Character comes to surface.

My main creative theme is to portray these savors within scenes during the afternoon of life.
 I hope you can imagine each figure's past, future and its current state of mind.


AFTERNOON OF LIFE

 

Figures whose features and postures are marked by time.


GROWING UP

 

Day-to day scenes of children.


SEASONAL SKETCH

 

First snow, after the rain, Christmas...  


CASTLE OF FABRICS

 

The castle of fabrics is created from a variety of cloths. Each material's unique texture is in full play.

Once the castle is completed, it needs residents.
A king and a queen, then a minister and a scholar, chamberlains...
then it also needs guards to protect the castle as well as the horses for King's outing.

In this ever-peaceful castle since its construction, the tantara of the trumpeters is a little bit out of tune....


in the WOODS AND the MEADOWS...

 

Lyrical comical scenes unrolled behind the flowers, in the grass...
