These artworks are not painted from real life, nor do they evolve from sketches. They grew from the synthesis of memories, feelings, imagination and sub-consciousness. The works were formed freely in the process of creation and have their own lives. The works' success and their meanings are dictated partly by the experiences, feelings, tastes and imagination of the audience and his or her empathy with the work. Therefore any explanation by the artist is for reference at best. The following is only a note about the inspiration of the creation. Please interpret these works as you wish.|
