  • DESCRIPTION: Signed and titled in pencil. <br><br> Artist statement - "'The Scissor Series' explores the themes of space, time, and light & shadow. I view time as an illusion: people observe actions through the filter of time, which can be influenced by memory and past experience. I wanted to show some sort of synchronized movements in my prints, at the same time reflecting upon observations of daily life. Viewers might react to the artwork with their own subjective feelings. <br><br> 'The Scissor Series' is not about sewing or any particular domestic issue, but instead about the threads that connect people in life. The red thread links the individual prints in the series, and represents the invisible threads that connect our lives." <br><br>
