In this series, I delved into atmospheric composition influenced by Nihonga, a style of Japanese painting. I utilized floating and otherworldly colors to evoke ethereal emotions, while placing the subject of cockatoos in mystical yet natural-inspired settings.

As mentioned in this article, my earliest memories of cockatoos left a profound impact on my childhood. In this series, the cockatoo symbolizes a state of calmness, reminiscent of our shared experience of our minds floating between the realms of awakening and unconsciousness.
