Fire is enticing and warm. The sky outside can be cold. I wanted to capture the contrast between the two; the result was the candle and boules. The boules are metallic and so don't have any colour; they just reflect what is in the environment. They became the vehicle to bring the outside coldness close to the heat of the candle, allowing me to capture the contrast in between.
ABOUT MY WORK:
I am fascinated with aesthetics of beauty. In my work, I am constantly looking for opportunities and compositions that help create a timeless work of art. I like to design an artwork while considering where it is viewed from, which is usually standing a couple of meters away. Up close, the surface may appear chaotic, but when you step back, suddenly the whole picture comes to view looking like a three-dimensional object.
I aim for an emotional reaction in each piece--optimism, calmness, sadness, fear, content, mystery and so on. I work in a variety of mediums simply because I like them all. Each has its own strengths and it is useful to exploit them for each specific topic.
With my engineering background and keen interest in psychology, I naturally pay a lot of attention to detail while composing and creating my works. Often, each work takes a considerable amount of time to produce, but I love it, so I don’t mind. The craft is just as important as the creativity and I put every effort to make sure a collector of my work would feel as strongly as I do about the art I create. If I can achieve that, I will be happy.
