Artist Statement

I have been creating paintings with oil paints. From the time of cave paintings, art has been deeply connected with society and has created values and hierarchies of beauty. I am a woman in my thirties living in the modern age who is confused by the values and norms that society unconsciously imposes on me. Painting materials such as paintbrushes and canvases often appear in my work. The paintbrush is myself, in search of true painting. Delving into the depths of darkness with the paintbrush, a tiny pickaxe, is my small challenge to the preconceived notions.
