STATEMENT

The fish in Thiep's thought conveys all the indulgence of human life. With reluctant interactions in an uncertain and unpredictable space, the being is wiped out by the extreme laws of nature. Thiep wants to go deeper into that life, into the water layer to contemplate, touch, feel, and desire to carve a shape - the shape of feeling.
