Letter Series is based on the ancient messages written on papyrus thousands of years ago, from Egypt, Greece and Italy. There are letters, for instance, from a man in a battlefield to his mother, from a woman to her lover, and from a family to invite their friends for dinner. While the contents seem familiar to us, a sender or recipient is no longer identified. As the series of work develops, the drawn images shift from closely depicting the original letters to abstraction as if colliding with each other.
