Artworks 2020s 

Reaching nearly 30 years of practice in visual art since college, my focus is still on our universe using myself and my life as a means to perceive its greatest wonder. I understand my being in the context of relationships of being connected as the following.


Everything exists in a relationship to others.

The relationships sustain the universe and form ultimate unity.

Unity comes with the understanding of relationships.

My work is a creative event of relationships that seeks this sacred unity.


All lives exist sustainably on the foundation of interconnected relationships. Over the years, I’ve come to erase the boundary between “I” and the rest. Air I inhale is from outside of my body. 60% of water inside my body is from outside of my body.


My works in recent years are again about this relationship and focus on its equilibrium. If any part missing or misplaced in the work, the whole composition would not function or collapse just as the extinction of bees will result in the shortage of food and collapse of the food chain. At the beginning of the 21st century, in our time of climate crisis facing the collapse of life on earth, and the current Covid pandemic, my work speaks about the universe intricately connected and brings attention to the way we consume, using the needleworks created with one thread connecting all parts, the recycled used vinyl with house paint on it, and fabric pieces woven with countless threads holding its structure.

This is based on scientific discovery about all beings are interconnected, and sustain life on Earth. From the dried-up Lake Mega-Chad in the Sahara Desert, 150 million tons of the fossilized remains are ground into fine dust and lifted up by the wind, and dropped in the Atlantic Ocean and Amazon forest yearly. In the Atlantic Ocean, planktons use it as a nutrient source, absorb carbon dioxide, and produce oxygen into the atmosphere. About half of the oxygen in the atmosphere is produced by the ocean phytoplankton. Furthermore, dust is dropped in the Amazon rainforest. Its infertile soil by constant rain and flood washing away the nutrients is replenished by this dust. Amazon rainforest is called the “lungs of the planet” because they draw in carbon dioxide and breathe out oxygen.
