Concept of artwork 設計理念:

For some time I have been interested in the implementation of small objects. Anything that is very small or very big evokes strong feelings. The pocket format allows them to be rotated, viewed from all sides. You can easily turn them over and see the bottom, every detail up close. The viewer with a small form creates a more intimate relationship. Figures have their secrets, secrets that hide in different spaces. These small forms are the family I create. It is filled with strong relationships - partner and maternity. There appear bizarre people, little heroes in colorful costumes, multiforms by imposing small portraits on their silhouettes. Some heroes are a hybrid of adults with infants, inflated, as if athletic, yet plump, stretching their arms as if to mother. These forms are my children, toys, heroes of my dreams. They resemble ethnic figurines from different parts of the world.
