The installation “TWILIGHT” , releaseing the infinitive light rays in the white space, creates a scene as if the light breaks through the cloud, and the crepuscular rays pour into the ground. The crepuscular rays is a beatiful natural phenomenon known as angel’ s ladder.

    Do we really need this reiteration of his chair ?

    Wheres the justification, innovation and poetry ?

    The paintings seem like an after thought and the design appears somewhat trite.
