Statement

 

I am very playful with my work. Often in the process, random compositions arise. What inspires me most are the memories of my childhood, both the happy and the sad memories. Sometimes, I like to see the world from the perspective of a child: simple yet extraordinary. I wonder if a painting can be a toy and the artist can play the role of the child. Through my work, I have moved back into the past with the view of an adult but the feelings and emotions of a child. My childhood is connected with my grandmother. From her, I learned the sewing technique in Vietnam. Sewing is the most important part of my work. I cut, paint and glue together until it is perfect. It is not just artistic work but a connection between the past and the present, between my grandmother and I. Every one of us has a different childhood. As a child, I drew a lot. I drew flowers with a simple circle and doodles or got intoxicated in game games. I read somewhere that "childhood as a white dew in the morning pure sunshine. Because in this innocent age, there is no measure of personal benefits. " I connect my work with the beholder through the simplest and freshest colors.
