I concern about the relationship between people’s emotions and their life styles. The importance of “sadness” inside people is found by discovering and understanding their experiences and backgrounds. We always say some predictive words, “If I could do this in the future, I would be satisfied.” We have desires due to our past. We have wishes that yet to come true, and so the sense of sorrow endures in our spirit. The people I drew did not give up their wishes, yet they show a moment of sadness that stemmed from their experiences or failures, a sigh of fragility.
Based on the content, contrast is form by the past and present, and I emphasized expressions through their eyes. Zao Wou Ki once said, “I was thinking how to visualize wind, as trees’ movement forms wind.” The interaction of the objects and atmosphere proves the existence of space. My feeling towards experience is just like a mist, untouchable yet not washable. By adding sheer layers, applying pencil on top to create a pathetic, vulnerable world. Making use of the past as the starting point to visualize the sense of sorrow.
