Viewpoint: Artist Statement

Harmony is valuable in life. It is warm and genteel yet complicated to create. Harmony requires great efforts and sensitivities. Each individual is respected and welcomed in the harmony they create. I like to approach my work with the same understanding I have for the word, harmony. Collage allows different images and media match together – creating harmony.

Viewpoint is one of the main factor that creates the quality harmony. It employs sensitivities to help individuals to recognize each other in a community. Each individual connects to others through their mutual viewpoint. Each image and the landscape speak to each other and create the harmony in my collage. Harmony allows us to be free from the fragility of our life, and encourages us to move forward onto our dreams and ambitions.
