Heart

 
Heart, 2013
wood cube, glue, alkyd, and stand 16 x 16 x 12 in. (with stand)

This is a simply my true love for 8-bit video games, friends, and family in my childhood. Those are everything for me back then. I hope people reaffirm their original purpose for life through this unadulterated pure heart.

New works, June 2013

 
A Woman And Two Puppies, 2013
c-prints 24 x 36 in., ed. 10

My first picture work “A Woman And Two Puppies” looks so lovely :-) This shows a mature woman, her own puppy, and my pixelated puppy at beautiful place called "The mall" in Central Park. At first I was looking for a young white girl models to follow the common images of art history in my mind, but I just realized it should be really boring normal fashion ads, so I changed my mind to use a mature woman, I mean an old woman. I think I did nice decision! Fortunately the model has her own six month old puppy and she wants to use her puppy together. And then you can see the nice picture above :-) I had an open studio a few weeks ago and a lot of people laughed with this.
