About the artworks “Soft and Warm”
Since 2008, I’ve been continuously created the artworks of “Soft and Warm” series. Infant’s pure and flawless is recognized by the people all over the world, which is beyond the values, birth, life background and other factors, like spontaneous and uncontrollable sigh. The baby’s pure serene sleeping brings the society peaceful, warm and even vitality. I think it will not have any negative factors.
I hope my baby series creation is our bond, from which we can find common thoughts and feelings to the world.
Blood vessels under the skin that are partly hidden and partly visible have some kind of pathetic vulnerability; on the other hand, the life temperature was produced due to blood circulation operation. So to what extent these two opposite things existing inside the human body can coexist and share with each other?
I mainly express human behavior, fetish, relationship and sense of distance by depicting human body.
