This is an explanation of the symbolism in my paintings:

"The bell, as the foremost symbol, is wordless speech, stronger than human speech. The sounds of bells invoke the spiritual being in people.

At different moods and modes of life, the sound of the bell always acts as something that alerts people. The bells at shrines clang to convey one's inner wishes to God...

... the 9 Dots are a symbol of eternity. A dot can be the tiniest possible being and it also expand to the huge size of the universe. As it moves around and around, it has no ending.

... the pyramid stands for optimism, the cloud for freedom and the overlapping squares depict intimacy and strength."
