나는 인간의 이면에 감춰진 욕망, 이상과 현실의 교차점에서 밀려오는 상실감과 불편한 감정들을 얼굴이 가려진 인물들을 통해 작품으로 풀어냈다. 동물을 암시하는 마스크나 재해석한 의복으로 인물의 성격을 설정하고, 주로 손의 형태를 결합해 기호의 요소로 사용했다. 또한 사회의 권력 구조를 표현하기 위해 종교 조각의 형태를 응용하였고 인물의 배치를 통해 연극의 한 장면 같은 분위기를 연출하고자 했다.

I explored hidden desire, sense of loss and discomfort encountered at the crossroads of the ideal and reality, and other human feelings through masked human figures in my works. I defined the characteristics of humans by using masks connotative of animals or reinterpreted clothes. I mainly combined shapes of hands, which I used as an element of signs. In order to express the power structure of society, I adopted a form of religious sculpture. I wanted to show an atmosphere like a scene of a play by arranging human figures.
