Every day of our lives, we are continually encountering the events which is caused by our ironical basic demands, such as get hungry so we eat, get hot so we drink cold water and work hard so we rest. We are in the middle of the gigantic stream of the story that is created by these balancing activities from these unlimited opposition solutions for our needs. In easy words, if we think that we should stop eating than we would like to keep eating, if there are something that gets forbidden than people will get crazy to do it. It is very common human society nature.


I found recent Hollywood movie “Gravity” very intriguing. The keyword from the movie was the gravity as it said on the title. The gravity contains the very basic but powerful force that can disrupt the time and space. The planet contains this gravity becomes huge magnetic object, which I believe that is origin of the rule of the opposition between plus and minus. Magnet contains two different sides N and S which is very mirror characteristic. They only be able to exist because of each other’s existences. They cannot be separated. As planet contains magnetic characteristic, we humans also variously have these two different sides characteristic. May be that is why we call someone “Star” who keeps others attention very well.


In this topic, it seems like I am demonstrating about magnetic characteristic between two opposite sides, however this discussion eventually become pointing at the third fact that is hidden. I believe that the world we are living is not only two opposite sides, there are third part. It is because of these two different sides. That is the reason why number three is easily acceptable for us. In many religions take the trinity very heavily, the three separations of powers in modern democracy countries and the most of competition counts up to the third place. In history, many of ancient scholars believed that human are consist of mind, soul and body. It could be effected by the fact that we are living in this three dimensional world.


My work “The completion of the beginning” is the story about between the complexity and simplicity, Big and small. As our huge solar system is nothing but only the dot from Milky Way galaxy map. Our complicated lives only a tale to someone. Personally, “beginning of the stop” was a big problem to me, it had been always conversational topic to me when I decided the level of completion for my work. I personally consider my painting as a human being. As human dies, I thought the completion of my work is decided when the movement of the picture is stopped. However, in my rule of the opposition, it always makes it hard when I tried to stop the movement of the picture to complete. However, I consider that this paradox leads to me to express the ironical movement which is stopped but still moving.


“The rule of the freedom” work came out in the opposite direction during my work “Beginning of the stop”. It was challenge to me with the thought “Let’s drawing freely”. It contains two face characteristic between stop and beginning, however I found often hard to orchestrate between this two opposite senses. For example, when I tried to draw feely, this thought became a limit to present a truly freedom. I think human made its own rules from the true freedom and when rule became limitation than always look for freedom. These activity has been going on entire human history. Therefore, it came to me as the thought that is it only ideal to think about the true freedom? Then there are no such a thing as the true freedom? I tried to describe this questions of mine in my work. Therefore, my work became not really free but also not really limited. From my work, I started to believe that if there are demands of being free then opposite side will demands as well so it will limit each other. I found that when the freely drawn lines met each other, they become closed space.


To be specific, all oh my works “The completion of the beginning”, “The rule of the freedom” and “Beginning of the stop” series are basically similar but they are different. I think that it is the true nature of the world. Same but different, different but same. As in wider view we are all human beings but we think we are not the same.

I think it is important to consider the true meaning of “The Opposite Side” from us. We think it is opposite, because it is opposite side from us or we think it is not this side so that we believe it is as “The Opposite Side”. I believe the ultranationalists and extremists of the left are actually similar. Two side divided oppositions are actually connected. I present this ironic characteristic world throughout my work.
