“I have been thinking about people’s consciousness. For example, where does consciousness come from? Will it eventually disappear? Can we say my consciousness is mine? We will never run out of these questions. I have been using mezzotint because of the deep tone made by this technique can express a strong presence. Consciousness is invisible but, through my work, I would like to depict it as something with a strong sense of existence…”
