The body not only acts as a container of my soul but also as a vessel that leads my mind and thoughts into various investigations. My work presents sceneries of the imagination regarding my body, based upon personal and bodily experiences. Through the layers of waxed papers, I represent the accumulation of markers of life. The complexity of these layers presents the mutation resulting from the accumulation and repetition and the human experiences often alienated in our times. Most of my work is produced by printmaking. I often create aquatint and silkscreen on thin Korean paper and then combine them in three dimensional ways such as independent sculptures and installations. I always think the process of making art is the effort to search my identity. Regarding this point, I hope that this thesis will continue to develop my conceptual arguments and aesthetical methods.
