나의 작업은 물의 물질적 속성에서 발현되는 이미지를 재발견하는 것이다. 나는 물이라는 물질을 통해 상상하고 새로운 이미지를 제시하여 현대를 사는 우리의 상상력을 자극하고자 한다. 이 전시에서 나는 물의 두 가지 물질적 속성을 작품에 활용한다. 첫 번째는 반영(反映)에 관한 것이다. 맑은 물은 거울의 이미지를 갖지만, 샘물의 거울은 때때로 많은 부분을 흐리게 하고 지워버리는 반영을 보여준다. 유약으로 덮인 표면은 샘물의 수면과 같이 흐리고 명확하지 않은 이미지를 보여준다. 흐린 이미지를 상상 속에 완성하는 것은 관람자의 몫이 되며 상상력은 완성을 추구하기 위한 원동력이 된다. 두 번째는 여성성에 관한 것이다. '빨간 흐름'은 여성성을 함축한 액체에 관한 것으로, 역동적이고 능동적인 여성의 물에 대한 것이다. 나는 피가 여성성을 가장 잘 내포하고 있는 액체라고 인식하며, 피라는 액체의 이미지는 물이 주는 무한한 상상력에서 이끌어진다.

My work is to re-discover the image that emerges from the material properties of water. I want to stimulate our imagination by imagining through a matter called water and presenting new images. I use two material properties of water in my work of this show. The first is about reflection. Clear water has an image of a mirror, but a mirror of spring water erases many parts of it. The erased parts are filled with our imagination. The glazed surface shows a blurred image, such as the surface of spring water. It's up to the viewer to complete a blurred image, and imagination is the driving force behind perfection. The second is about femininity, one of the material images of water. 'Red Flow' is about a liquid that is imbued with femininity. I recognize blood as the fluid with the most feminine properties, and the image of a fluid called blood is leaded by the infinite imagination of water.
