All the Existence of the Impossible

To me, work is not an attempt at the notion, “I should do good work” but it is rather a question itself: “what is good work?”

‘Existence and thought’ has been my artist’s motto to reconcile painting and myself for a long time. Rather than a means of representing or proving a reality, it is a passage through which to realize the invisible truth, as well as an acceptance of the limitations of an expression.

In particular, on the basis of Ludwig Wittgenstein’s philosophy, “Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one must be silent,” it attends to the ontology of potentiality?that is, ‘prohibit all the existence of the impossible (rather than prohibiting thinking of the impossible).’ It is a process of accepting the paradoxical insight that there is an area which cannot be spoken of and of securing clarity of another existence.

There are more meanings in the number 25920; through this all things address the mutually organic relationship. However, the meaning of the numbers in my painting is not important; they are merely portrayed as formative signs.
