I come from tradition of Modern figure painting and have been exploring ways the painted images convey feelings and provoke nostalgia. The portrait of child/adolescent with still life (toy or pet) began to appear in my recent works, and they reflect my own longing for the mysterious world of youth and their sweet attachment to things in their world. I was always drawn to sights of children at play as they seem extremely focused and full heartedly immersed in their activity of play. Their indifference to the complexity of the abstract issues of the world makes a clear contrast with modern anxiety of adulthood.
