Artist Statement

"Differences in human physique embody inside and outside: male, with his capability to act outwardly, and female, with her inner capacity to endure pressure. Today, equating this to roles within a home stand at a crossroad of being outdated or embraced.

I directly compare cloth with femininity. Structurally, both hold traits of a deep-seated fragility. Single threads, repetitively built up, construct cloth. Our body repeats a single cycle to prepare itself to bear. A womb and a blanket act nestlike while adapting to what they hold. Similarly, bricks and cement become a shell of a building, seemingly strong, on par with man. I exploit such materials by forcing a raw interaction between them, exposing a strength, weakness and resilience in each. By making this way, I contemplate the homelike qualities of masculine and feminine balance.”
