ag_artist_statement : As an artist who believes and focuses in human communication/relationships, my inspiration for my recent work comes from the increasing popularization of Emojis, or emoticons in the past decade. The use of these cute little faces has become essential in our modern communication. My emoji series, presents two aspects: The first aspect depicts humans’ distinctive and unique emotions, emphasizing on each singular expression to reveal a simplified but honest emotion of a human being. They focus on representing a wide spectrum of each “feeling”, from everyday emotions to expressive reflection on complex social issues. The second aspect shows a harmonious consolidation of various emotions and expressions. A variety of faces first begin to form small blocks, overlapping, connecting, and eventually altogether constructing a larger image and shape. I wanted to show that of all the eclectic characteristics and uniqueness within, balance and harmony can co-exist among complex human relationships.
