Work Statement

One Friday afternoon in April 2007, I saw a dead body from my office window at the Empire State Building’s 56th floor. A man who was a lawyer jumped from his office. This scene wasn’t erased from my head with the color of the sky which was cruelly brilliant blue. This remembrance became my cliché.

Sunken flower under water became my subjects to explore conflicted emotion between life and death, or hope and desperation. I feel a strong connection with flowers and death since we usually put flowers for the memory of a deceased person.
