“Just like how the children of The Chronicles of Narnia” became prince and princess, not only can I imagine myself becoming a different person, but I actually can turn myself into any existence, whether it be someone from a famous painting, a movie actress, a singer, an animal, or a monster. I myself am not a resident of Narnia, but I too have my own secret realm similar to Narnia: It is the ‘Kingdom of Art’.

Self-portrait to me is a living experimentation in which I attempt to shift myself into the ‘Kingdom of Art’, the secret realm separated and different from the reality. There is a possibility that if the experiment fails, I might never make it back to the real world, and this I say from my own experience in the past. It is indeed an experiment full of risks, however, the most dangerous challenges are the most seductive. It is certain that for the rest of my days, I will never find escape from my own expressions of a self-portrait.”
