The Flower Has Bloomed cuz The Neck was Broken, 2018
It’s been one hell of a ride to come this far. It wasn’t easy to accept the outcome of the accident which destroyed my neck in half and all other surrounding things of my life. I have been trying hard to reconstruct and strengthen my shattered mentality and life in a different method. If I could walk, I could have held a girl’s hand to go out for a date, however I can’t anymore. Now I have a different way of life and a different road to take. But, I can say out loud that the flower has bloomed because I broke my neck. I made my portrait by using multimedia on a 2-meter wide wooden canvas. And then painting on the canvas while holding a paint brush attached to a 1.6-meter long fishing rod in my mouth.
It took me four days to complete. In order to paint on each corner of the canvas, I had to rotate the canvas, and sometimes turn it upside down, to batter my brush against the canvas.
Making the texture by using a stamp which was made of a special material, painting of the symbol mark “Kinky Line” by utilizing a masking technique, and layers of the printed word “medium” gave multi-stratification to the artwork.
