Where and when have I seen this scene? Has it been exactly my experience or not?
My pictures sometimes fill me up a sort of deja vu.
Though it's distinctive feature, contemporary convenient information‐oriented society make public apathy.
So we have to rethink what is the experiences.

My artworks are composed by fixing the memories of my real experiences using the photographs which I took by myself and will intervene in memory of appreciator.
Starting from defining a minimum constituent element of image of the memories in my brain is constructed by "color tone" and "form".
In the process of pursue the purity of these two agenda, act of drawing with the paintbrush is lost, then coincidences and a certain phenomenon filled my art works.
Visualized a mixture of concreteness and abstractness which immanent in our memories link to the appreciator's individual passed images.
Through this visual experience, they will begin to look for their memories to find exact places. In front of the image which appreciator ever seen somewhere, they will have to look for what did and do they see.
