Now, we are living in the era of the disappearance of seed-diversity where 63% of plant species and 94% of vegetable species disappeared globally. The same phenomenon has occurred also in Korea. After recognition of the seriousness of this environmental problem, I’m on the project exploring the diverse beauty of indigenous seeds visually.
As a visual artist, the way I research and report native seeds is totally different from the way environmentalist does, which would preferably be the chance to spread this issue to the people so indifferent to keywords such as ‘Eco-friendly’and‘farming’ that had few chances to know this issue.
These facial expressions are composed only with native bean-species in Korea.This is a simple image taken for fun but still shows ‘multifariousness’ Mother Nature has by nature, which has been disappearing and must be preserved.

Drawing with cosmetics for 'Dazed'
I was commissioned by Fashion magazine 'Dazed and confused' Korea to paint a picture with cosmetic products. 'Dazed' povided me with makeup products of S/S season such as eyeliner, rouge and eyeshadow. It was highly enjoyable project to me in that I was able to draw something with such a soft texture and delicate . vivid colors of cosmetics.

Eyeglasses studies
It was my goal to make sculptures only with things on my desk. After experimenting with a few kinds of stuff on my desk, I opted for eyeglasses to deepen this study. Since the items were used by me, I had to fix and arrange them without glue. Therefore I chose to put things on the flat surface or bind them with a bit of material on the desk.

walking butterflies
sometimes, I imagine normal things acting totally different way from a stereotype. This image is one of that kind of my imagination. Even though people think that butterfly only flies, they love to walk with wings whenever people don't see them.
