Artist Statement:
As an artist and a doctor, I have sought to better understand and explore the human body from many perspectives. Through painting, I attempt to dissect and reimagine the figure as an expression of its physical, psychological, and emotional components. I am inspired by the external role of nature and society, as well as the internal role of experience and memory, on one's body. By exploring realism and abstraction, inorganic and organic materials, and the transparency and physicality of paint in my work, I hope to reveal a new understanding of the human condition.
