My painting expresses the main concept, involving the state of existence and my understanding about existence. The paintings depict pain, suffering, and struggle, while still retaining hope. They contain two important aspects. First is the nude figure with no face, hands, and feet. The nude figures and body language in these paintings represent my negative emotional state. The second is the use of abstract elements. The abstract elements represent my feeling and mood, in addition to create the atmosphere.
