I paint to document moments that I want to cherish. I look at my repeated days from my own perspective and notice different moments within the mundane space and situation. Observing the shape of my friend’s arm while she watches TV lying on her bed, the colors of my hands and arms in the shower, and the shapes that the leaves create as they sway in the wind on a late summer day makes my ordinary days exciting and inspiring. In fear of forgetting such quotidian yet precious moments when I felt secure and happy, I started to paint the fleeting memories. My paintings are the visual preservation of temporary moments in my life in order to let the moments last longer. To use my own memory as a main reference for painting, I meticulously reimagine the images I observed in my daily life. I then transfer shapes and colors that resonate with me into a small to medium sized oil painting.
