Lily

"Flower lily has been used as a symbol of purity, heaven, and innocence. I wanted to create a monster lily to represent many human problems, so the two contradictory meanings of innocence and monster are expressed as one sculpture. It relates to my art theme Utopia-Dystopia."

"The materials are very feminine and also the process is feminine, and yet the characters are monster-like. This represents our heart that wants to run away from reality to hide. It shows our weakness but can become a monster."
