Artist Statement:

What is the shape of the universe? This question attracted me in early childhood. When a little girl drew the picture, it sometimes took the shape of a single cluster of grapes hanging from the vine, and at other times, it was like a tree bearing a bunch of nuts and berries. In her universe, even a system of billions of stars, i.e., what we call the Galaxy, used to spread out inside the grape, nut or berry. Several decades after, I’m still charmed by this question. Probably, the answer is only in the hands of God, and we may not be allowed to reach the truth.

Like the tissue of a petal of roses similar to the tissue of a body of human beings, the structure of brains and the system of the cosmos may also be alike. Consequently, any small and big in this world may be taking fundamentally the same form. This is because linking a small to another small at the level of cells eventually shapes a big, resulting in inextricable ties of all livings across spaces and over time. Seems too far, but knowing the Creation of this world may indeed be within our reach.

Hoping to depict the structure of the world and the circle of life, approximately 20 etchings and 10 drawings will be displayed this time.

Opening Reception: October 25, 7-9 pm.
