Finding a subtle balance between being in control of artistic perception and losing control of artistic approach is my pursuit. Perhaps, the act of losing control is not the opposition of being in control, but it is the extension of being in control. The sense of unknowing retains a certain awareness of cognition, the emptiness remains conscious through contemplation, and one’s dream-work always relates to one’s reality. Hence, an artwork that seems purely abstract with dramatic motions might conceal the artist’s unspoken desire.
