Seeking Fundamental and Primitive Beauty

When an object is cut from its original place and becomes a fragment, one can sense the memories conveyed through it. Even if the object is simple and symbolized, when the symbols are so numerous that their meanings cannot be deciphered, the object distances itself from its original purpose, becoming a single entity that evokes something fundamental. By shaping the object, creating an outline, and infusing it with intent and density, I aspire to harmonize it into a pure and fundamental work of art.
