My art represents my innate and complete sense of self in a dream form. I derived my art from the concept of Dramaturgical Approach, which receives the society as a stage, and every entity is composed of different stage settings and different actors representing different character traits; the actors are free to change these traits during each performances. Under this premise, dreams represent a stage where human nature can be materialized in its raw form, which is where my inspiration originated. What is more enticing about dreams is the fact that it is uninhibited by any moral, time and spatial restraints; dreams represent ultimate freedom. I hope audience can derive a unique form of self from my art works. The value of art comes from the instance where emotions are touched.
