Theme «Body»


The «Body» theme mainly entails an unstable human figure. Because life includes death and the body can not be maintained forever, people are anxious and yearning for life.

It is my personal experience that my paintings deal with serious, dusky topics. The death of my father at the age of 14 was the first time that I was confronted with death. When I was pregnant, my girlfriend suddenly disappeared from the stage of life and when my son was two years old, my mother passed away. Life and death both came in stark contrast to me. My son held my hand and my mother let go of my other hand. I felt the passion of life in one hand and the cold loss in the other hand.


After this experience, I began to draw the human body intensely and naturally the drawings contained my feelings and thoughts. Death had entered my life.
