''My motif is children whose ages are around ten to fifteen years old. Their attempt to adjust themselves to the modern environment in our time seems to be a hard battle to me. Also, they are living in an unstable time between being a child and a being an adult. I pick up their warped attitude or feeling toward the outer world and express it through their physical body which has not been balanced yet.
Through their unstable presence, I can express deep feelings I have inside, such as grief, alienation, and love. I believe that adults who were once a child feel compassion with the children I paint.''
