Thank you for watching the video.

As reported in the video, the artist uses beeswax in the creation of her works.

She creates a base with acrylic paint on a panel, and then layers waxed Japanese paper on top of the base, ironing it in place until it reaches a comfortable color.

When acrylic paint dissolved in water is applied on top of this, the unevenness and lines accidentally created by the beewax become visible.

When heat is applied to the beewax with an iron, the beewax and the paint move together, changing the appearance of the painting.

Excess lines and shapes are shaved off with a knife. She spends a lot of time in the process of scraping off the excess lines and shapes.

While repeatedly applying and correcting the paint over the top, she sometimes intentionally takes the coincidence of the beeswax and expresses her own unique worldview.

The charm of her works, which she creates while interacting with the materials on the screen, can be directly felt when you stand in front of her works.

Let’s visit the exhibition next time you are in the area.
