Artist Statement:


    I have been pursuing expression of abstract realism: an integration of photo-realism and abstract expression. Three-dimensional models are recursively deformed to produce abstract expression while preserving the three-dimensional shading and its crystal-quality material. This series depicts internal emotional states. Calm emotion is expressed as
    quiet forest and river. Troubled emotion is expressed as swirls and a somewhat chaotic environment. Romantic emotion is expressed as a romantic evening.


Technical Information:


    The works are produced by deforming 3D models by recursively
    twisting and bending. These models are placed in 3D space to show the inter-relationship between the objects. The images used for textures and reflection maps are rendered by ray tracing to create the metallic quality
