My work affects human subconsciousness by presenting an unconscious, perceptual stimulus that is not easily recognizable. A Monstera leaf and a woman's silhouette in my works represent a strong vitality. Born in the dense jungle of Mexico, Monstera lives under the big trees of the rainforest, dividing the small amount of light into the leaves below and making holes in the leaves to live well together, and growing with the leaves torn apart to survive the ever-changing rainstorms and harsh natural conditions.
I have adopted a Monstera leaf and images of a woman as subjects that convey a strong message of vitality called 'resurrection.' The only colors used in this work by me are Lemon yellow, which represents the theme, and jungle green, and light green, which are used in action painting techniques in the background. It is a picture in which the shapes of a Monstera leaf and a woman are separated from each other and become part of each other rather than being independent in itself. So a Monstera leaf becomes a woman and a woman becomes a Monstera leaf.
The silhouette technique of my healing graphism works do not use anything other than the subject. While the images are symbolic, they are as simple as a symbol or a trademark. A happy man is not without wounds, but a man can heal himself through many wounds. My healing graphism works are emotionally capable of supporting this belief. Everyone lives with a variety of problems that are not resolved in their minds, though problems may differ from one person to another. Physical wounds heal over time, but mental wounds persist. Wounds exist in the form of energy within our bodies. No matter how hard we try to get rid of them or deny them, they are hiding somewhere and, from time to time, appear seemingly out of nowhere.
The action painting technique used as a background evokes a primitive sense. I approached my own unique action painting, reminiscent of the visual effects of closing up countless constellations in the night sky with an astronomical telescope. It's a more direct and concrete approach to the subconscious that we all have. Through the literature, I've learned that action painting techniques from Jackson Pollock have led to Sam Francis and many other artists, and I was confident that it's safe to apply them. Some people even think of scenes from Disney movies where Tinkerbell flies. It is also said that Tinkerbell's signature flying around the castle on the intro at the beginning of Disney's.
