Artist Statement 2011

I am interested in the movement that everything alive makes from moment to moment. Although a single captured moment can be full of hidden meaning to us, movement adds a sense of strong vitality and shows tenacious hold on life. Whether the subject is ceaselessly moving nature or intricately entangled city scenes, moving things always keep my eyes open. When we look at something alive, it constantly becomes something else. What we are looking at is not what it was any more and what we are going to look at is always what is not happening yet. Only the “movement” itself is the most present.
