Loneliness

When I first think of this topic, it was because of Edward Hooper’s paintings. The characters he painted: the woman awakened sitting by the window in Morning Sun, the woman sitting on her own in a café in Auto Mat, and the woman sitting by the window alone in Room in New York – they all present a sense of loneliness. I love very much travelling on my own and I get to see a lot in my journeys. I often see senior people walking slowly in the streets all by themselves, expect for having a little Yorkshire Terrier following them. They all bring me a sense of sadness, an emotion of loneliness. I want to use my own style to convey such feelings. Nowadays with the advancement of online communication, it is often discussed whether the distance between people is shorter or longer. I would like to see my drawings inspire people to care more about those around them, and return to the face-to-face communication with others.
