"Co-existence of unconsciousness and consciousness. Something not planned comes out from such co-existence and it encourages me to find other things. Such phenomenon is just what our life is, and in a wider sense of the word, it is just our life."

On the other hand, the artist wants to unfold a perfect world within his canvas. Since such 'perfect world' could not be found within himself, he opts for a method of searching for something being seen. However, since no absolute perspective into phenomena and events exists, his world of art may be either imperfect or insecure.
The artist sublimes into a work the beings we do not know about systematically or the process toward a perfect and absolute world. Probably, however, his memory of not a perfect future world but a perfect beginning of the word may struggle to find a story in his work, relying on his fragmented unconsciousness.

"It will be as much visible as the audience can see. They may or may not see it. Their life is mirrored differently on the canvas.

The artist tells us that we live a life sharing the mental and spiritual things but that we are much biased toward the material ones in an imperfect direction. However, he does not intend to discuss whether they are right or wrong. Rather, he wants us to see in his painting the forms highlighted or buried through the filter of experience and thereby, recover the mental parts being neglected and further, he wants to share with us the experiences of the stimulation being healed.

Today, fine art no longer exists as a work. There are living, life and philosophy therein. When we appreciate an art work, we understand the contents therein according to our own unique interpretations. The artist is not kind enough to show us everything, but he wants as many things as possible to be visible to us. Here and there, his works show us the traces hinting his agony over the distance of communication between himself and his audience.
