from Plus to Minus

The cherry blossoms are beautiful because they are fleeting. We would like to feel the beauty not only during the zenith of things, but also in their process of decay. We have lived through periods of mass production and mass consumption. Even as society overflows with material goods, more and more people say they do not really feel happy. What is the meaning of happiness? This work explores the pursuit of addition and the aesthetic of subtraction. I finished this work by not laying colors one after the other, but by instead washing them out from a canvas.
