    Different eyes, nose, and mouth. Different skin language and food. And different land, water, and air. Living alone in a new country seems as if
I were born again as a child. I have to learn how to speak from the beginning, but I am old enough to know shame and fear. Away from my familiar life makes me feel that I lost my mom who takes care of me, who protects me. However, this stranger's life is not only uncomfortable and difficult,but also full of curiosity.

    The exhibition features day to day life in New York getting in my eyes for over 500days from the first day of arrival. These paintings captured personal moments and memories that I constantly encountered anywhere, every day in New York.
