I am interested in a photography that looks for the visible in order to show the invisible beyond the reality as it appears. A threshold of visual and spatial perception.

The concept that I am applying in my works is about 2 main ideas:
Every painting is pure emotion reflected in combination of different colors. Emotional in this case does not reflect the process how you create art work but rather transparency of transforming internal emotions into colors on canvas. I try to remove any roadblocks and obstacles between internal feelings and external interpretation of them.
Another central idea is about an attempt to trigger positive thinking and emotions on viewers side. Why it is so critical. First of all in a world of change and so dynamic environment we are so much stressed by having negative emotions so the idea of sharing positive feelings and bringing something positive is so much critical. Also supporting each other thru giving positive impulse, motivating viewers and giving them a chance to think is so much important. Finally, when you put art work at home you bring someone thinking, idea and emotions in your personal world. This is so much personal and sensitive so you need to be very careful. Literally it means an artist shares part of their heart and soul with you. And ideally that should be done in so much gentle way to avoid clash with your internal nature and your reflection of external world.
I am trying to take a snapshot of specific moments in my life when I feel something very positive about people, nature or different aspects of life. It is always unique simply because there are no exactly the same situations or moments. It will be different every time with some new colors or emotions or simply some ingredients that combine and create art. That should be performed at maximum synergy between internal feelings and external environment that includes sounds, colors, emotional context and finally becomes the part of your life!

My photographic style is influenced by my obsession for time and my vital passion for arts.
I like to have a slow and close approach with the subject, trying to discover in the shape of a sculpture or a building the same delicacy and softness of the human body.
Nowadays, waiting for the right ray of light can be a challenge with the fast daily routine of a big city and Roma isn?t an exception.
Nevertheless, its amazing heritage is a powerful combination of past and unique art history inviting to an aesthetic experience.
I feel that the only way to understand old and ancient art is to make it participate in our own life and this is exactly what I have tried to realize in my project, Borromini and the discovery of light.
Focused on the works of the great architect Francesco Borromini (1599-1667), my photos show a web of cross-references and related impressions that, surprisingly, can be interpreted by each spectator in a different way.
In such a visual intermingling, past, present and future become faded notions that reveal an unlimited potential of shapes and compositions.
Their value goes beyond space and time, just like the atmosphere of Roma, la città eterna.

My Note for Dragonfly
A desire to win eternal fame as an artist.
I think that desire is perhaps the desire of all artists
A symbol of desire to soar, to achieve, to win eternal fame; wings
What kind of wings are mine?
This question lead me to observe dragonflies' wings.
My [observing dragonflies' wings] started by thinking of myself as a small creature in this universe, like a dust.
I will replace explanation of the artwork with my poem for the dragonfly.
Zoom in - poem by Seo inkyung-
I watch you closely by your signs.
You have kept your immemorial past
despite your wings that will crush by the slightest touch
Your obstinacy persists in you!
Do you remember,
The time that your flutter covered the sky,
The time that your flutter shook the world
Do you know
of The hidden beauty inside yourself
of The stubborn obstinacy inside you
open your wings and fly again
just like then
Dragonfly is a mere small and ordinary figure in our daily lives.
Observing an object is an action of affection and attention to the object.
With the affection and attention, anything in the world seems lovely.
I want to talk about the loveliness and the tenacity of the dragonfly's wings that are hidden in our daily lives. Such features of the dragonfly are also present inside ourselves.
I want you to find your beauty inside yourself, along with the beauty of the dragonfly, with my art work.

This year's Washington Horseman's Park Annual Gala Event auction fundraiser, will include my original contemporary acrylic painting, "Unbridled Horses", as a 100% donation to the event. A new, state of the art facility, the equestrian park is close to realizing the dream of building a spectacular indoor arena as the show piece for the 112 acre facility.
When I was a young woman, my best friend and I would look forward to attending horse shows at Bridle Trails State Park, near Kirkland, WA. A lovely outdoor facility, you were smart to arrive early, if you were to watch the hunter jumper classes in decent bleacher seats - meaning the few seats available in the shade of the pine trees on the West side. As time went on, Bridle Trails became surrounded by upscale homes back to back, and fewer horse properties.
Snohomish County also tried to fund and maintain a horse show facility in Monroe, WA, at the large and popular fairgrounds there. Unfortunately, their new horse show arena was quickly appropriated for indoor motorcycle events. With the car racing track, right behind the arena, it wasn't always a happy situation. The use of the arena by equestrians, and the nextboor car racing events, still share the popular venue, that has admirably shuffled dates for use around the needs of all concerned.
Washington State equestrians smartly obtained a suitable parcel of land for a grand horse park; suitable for International events, permanently dedicated to all equestrian sports centrally located in Cle Elum, WA. Placed safely past the seasonal rain curtain of Western Washington, the Horseman's Park boasts open access to miles of trails via adjacent National Forest lands.
We'll be looking for you in future years at the expansive equestrian facility being realized near Cle Elum, among the big pines. My contemporary equine art donation is in remembrance of the summer horse shows I attended with my best friend, so many years ago.

I am pleased to be able to join the Artrooms fair Seoul at the beginning.
I am not 'rooms' this time, but I am filled with the pleasure of seeing the picture.
I started activities as an artist for the first time in about 20 years in 2014. It was the time when I saw the face that I am pleased by drawing animation illustrations to my sons.
I began to draw pictures from the idea that I would like to disseminate feelings at that time from myself. And the act of drawing with colored pencil is the basic stance.Because color pencils are always present in every country. I would like to show that drawing can be drawn even from countries that are fighting. My picture is not good at all but I hope to prove it.
I have a goal. "I will like you my picture!" But that's just drawing it.
Just spreading pictures in Japan is not easy. I am communicating my activities while playing Japanese anime characters on SNS. And now there is.
It is an announcement before Artrooms fair.
I draw painting also to Art San Diego 2018 from 10/18 to 10/21. Change It is a flower of a morning glory. Thank you.

The tribes living from around the Salish Sea are creative, and inventive people. From turning a tall cedar tree, into a vertical totem pole that tells a story for generations, or changing ideas into software that runs the world; Seattle rain seems to encourage the composting of ideas, into concrete works of art, and technology.
Seattleite Don Miles used the common-place materials of acrylic, and cement, and gave us something that could be colorful, durable, and flexible, a new material, useful in the creation of durable works of art, or the many ways that cement alone may be found. When I met Don, he was selling this amazing, powdered material, out of his garage in the Mount Baker neighborhood of Seattle. He'd measure it out like flour into buckets, weight it, place it in plastic buckets, seal it; then proceed to pour a milky, white liquid into gallon jugs, matched to the dry amount.
I was usually trailing along one of my little girls, who would explore his interesting piles of rocks, fascinated by the several different gravel sizes he had separated into neat, small mounds in his backyard. As I would anxiously call my daughters off the very top of the not-so-perfect-anymore, hills of rocks, he would hand me my purchase, help us into the car, and on we'd go home to create our first experiments in a new, Seattle invention. An acrylic plus cement, admixture.
Don encouraged me to use this material to build my horses, and see what I could achieve. Many other artisans and sculptors were discovering the unique, hardy properties of his durable material as colorful sculptures, vessels, and surfaces.
Soon thereafter, (maybe inspired by my toddler's frequent disruption of his organized rock piles,) Don's local material was soon made available in the commercial neighborhood of Ballard, at Salmon Bay Sand and Gravel.
Acrylic and cement, Milestone is able to withstand time, and share an enduring image, for future generations along the Salish Sea.
