My main creation is a development of painting portray that sketches the impression of music, 

literature, film, trip and so on. The primary sensation (original sensation) as a starting point,

I draw the sensation that occurs while in creation (following sensations).

When I try to reconstruct the reality of original art itself to my creation, it will only be chaotic,

so by prioritizing the color of paint, material texture, the wanted shape and searching the reality

in paintings, I am willing to ‘compose’ as well.
