Some things are very close, some are out of reach. The darkness contrasts with some bold colors, and what looks like a photograph from afar, is actually made of very simple brush strokes of oil on canvas, that become almost abstract as you get closer. "This relativity towards knowledge and time fashions the work. There are no absolute answers or truths. They are all just theories, some of which are better than others" - SHAY KUN.

"The fuzzy, off-center colors behind the window are just as we think they should be. As we drive along the interstate of our lives our memories grow hazier in the distance much like looking through the side windows of a moving car and only seeing colors without clear, definitive shapes" - SHAY KUN

"My work deals a lot with memory and perception, through my past travels into these dark ages and the perspectives I internalized, I realized that I am aware things are not as I perceived or thought they would be…similarly to the moment we realize looking through a rainy window the image behind the window is distorted" - SHAY KUN.
