I selected portrait as the best way to present the character and intensity of emotion, i.e. the non-physical dimension of a human being and its affect on the physical. I start with the idea that it is thought that keeps the balance between the inside and the outside of a human. Then I explore emotions that have the power to change human expression to the limit. I experience the construction of a portrait (the process during which the outside is still recognisable) as life, and its deconstruction by the emotion as death. Thought will bridge these two extreme states and restore the balance.
