Currently works as an independent film

"My work has no meaning, no direction, no strategy, no coherence. Whether it is abstraction or hyper-realism, every image that enters through the two eyes is just an electrical signal transmitted to the brain. The distinction between abstract and non-abstract is only defined by humans.

 

So for me, figuration and abstraction are the same. When I want to paint a figurative painting, I paint a figurative painting, and when I want to paint an abstract, I paint an abstraction. When I want to make a movie, I make a movie, and when I want to make a sculpture, I make a sculpture. I only pay attention to what I want to express at this moment and set the format according to it.

 

My work has no meaning whatsoever. If there is something I want to say, I can write it or say it like this. It is the fastest and most direct way to convey meaning. Interpretation of my work is solely up to the audience.

 

If life is meaningless, then art is meaningless. It is just eating food that suits their taste in the “meaninglessness” of it."
