About works / performance

I am interested in the power, institutions, economy, and history of art. I travel to various places to explore the presence of a common language of art or their regional differences, creating figurative paintings and drawings. I perceive art, including painting, as something that goes beyond aesthetic experience to encompass social connections, including ownership and distribution of artworks. I engage in self-referential creation in response to this perception. My artistic mission is to convey the structure of that world through representational narrative paintings.
