Selected artworks  2000 - 2004

"Nobang," Korean transparent-colored-silk became the crucial medium for the creation of the intended saturation of color. Many works were created based on my personal experiences of "Miniere Disease" from 2009 to 2012. During the first two years, I struggled with the complete loss of mobility, battled with physical, mental, financial and spiritual challenges. With limited mobility and vision, I began to work again in 2011.
