I am fascinated with human statues, such as China’s pottery figures, grottos, or human body sculptures. What interests me most are the statues’ historical, cultural, and artistic backgrounds. From these elements, I can understand what society and culture were like at the time the art pieces were made.
For this reason, my ceramic artwork mostly involves the human form. A series of nude photos that British photographer Bill Brante took inspired me to explore the human figure from the viewpoint of the camera lens. From images that I previously recorded or recalled from memory, I transformed them into ceramic forms.
