About Existential Emptiness series
I always feel that I am formed by several different alter ego. My existence transforms according to different times and dimensions.
Each of them lives on their owns, but each is still self-contented.
This implies division on the realistic level, but I don’t think it really is, maybe we all live in an indefinite status because of the nature of existence: some aspects can be seen by eyes, but some can only be felt or sensed by different levels of consciousness.
This series of work is completed in these different conditions of me.
