Portraits often suggest an underlying universal essence that mixes with the complicated lives of the painted subjects. It is difficult to capture the pure image of someone because of the overwhelming information that floods today’s society. I ‘sketch’ massive images collected from the internet, and I attempt to penetrate and represent their inner thoughts and reflections which can’t be reached from the screen. It seems like the sketch of the ‘real’ is only a reflection of the mixing between emotion and status.
