MFA Ceramics ’19
I believe that everyone is unique and individual. I am a sensitive person. And being a sensitive person, I can feel overwhelmed easily. I’ve often been told that I think too much, which simply leaves me feeling different and unaccepted. But there are many positive aspects to being a sensitive person. Through working on my projects, which reveal my inner thinking, I discover and re-discover who I am, and learn how to embrace myself. In order to convert the concept of “sensitive people” into sculpture, I begin by observing people’s postures. I believe that personality can be revealed through body language, and that body language can sometimes be a more direct and honest way to express our feeling rather than words. The figures in my work are based on the postures of sensitive people.
