Although metal might appear to lack expressive qualities, it is a special material for me, because its property enables a simultaneous pursuit of two sides. It is perfectly suited for expression by linking sheets at different angles. While metal cannot escape the fate of oxidation, it is a mysterious material that can be reclaimed. A stimulating and inspiring color, whose inherent property enables complicated expressions, incorporates delicate light and shadow into my work.
