In realistic portraits, in which the proportions and

postures of the figures become very important, I used photographs

of myself as a reference for a stronger realism. Becoming the model

for my portraits was only natural and yet coincident on the other

hand. Most of all, despite the voluntary modelling, my works laid

different characters over the figures; therefore I have not considered

them as myself. Then one day, I encountered a moment when

I realized that the person on the canvas looked like the person

reflected on the mirror in my studio. It was a small, but significant

turning point. The person on the canvas, whom I had believed to be

someone else all along, had not only my face, but also my current

state: not being proud of who I truly am but being lukewarm and

conscious of other people’s opinions. When I witnessed myself as a

third person, my direction that has longed to find my true self but

instead been indecisive could finally focus towards introspection,

starting a new phase of a complete immersion. Though a definite

confirmation of my identity may not be reached, but I may become

more confident as I start honestly confessing the current condition

of being bound to other people’s judgements as it is. Confessional

art practice about my quotidian state is how I came to start the

search for my true self. Subjects in my paintings often reflect my

regular behaviors and habits, which is an artistic practice as well

as an honest confession from reflecting my life. At this phase, the

Faux-Naif (Feign) series, having made a transition to self-portraits,

have also been reconsidered as a practice that confesses who I am.
