Statement

Revealing the Strangeness and Hidden Beauty of Insects.

Insects are easily spotted around us but they are considered as something that people don’t want to look or think  because of their different appearance. I was attracted by their different and strange proportion and colors so I wanted to express them from my point of view. Main material of my work is skin of animal and it can be visually offensive. But it gives infinite inspiration and powerful force as the material enables me to make various attempts. 
It brings interesting yet, strange feeling by being combined with uniqueness that you feel from shape and skin of insects. These two different feelings are reproduced into something attractive by generating subtle tension. 
I hope viewers can share my feeling and view through myworks recreated by me.
