Through diverse media, my works discuss the scientific inquiry on rising sea levels and the more significant implications of everyday behavior in society leading to climate change. A technique essential to my practice is producing still-life paintings and objects that can better communicate information to the public by using appropriate intellectual and mechanical hand tools. My incorporation of these tools symbolizes metamorphosis to a new life. By using still-life techniques in paintings from observing site-specific and site-responsive installations, I explore how the environment, society, and culture are linked with the issues of climate change. By using clay and metal as mediums in my installation, I reflect our human activity to manipulate the world. The notion of clay and metal is an important metaphysics because we influence nature to create human civilization. The still-life paintings and objects are a carefully constructed reality that manifests the way in which I relate to the world.
