I’ve been painting on a fabric as a canvas. Through another body of my work, which is an installation based work using fabrics, I tried to investigate people with inner assumption.
Textiles are indispensable for human life. Textiles reflect different nationalities, religions, and life styles. I attempt to experience their lives and expand my imagination of the people by painting on a fabric for daily use, like outfit, place mat, curtain, etc.
