In the series of Hydra, I tried to deepen my understanding about the materialistic imagination by visualizing an ancient imaginary creature Hydra. I think Hydra is the perfect poetic imagery which embodied the ambivalence of the water, which is the vitality and peril of water.

I also tried to connect the form of printmaking to the subject matter. I expressed vitality of Hydra visually through this work: Hydra_ multiplied skin. As you can see, it’s lithography. Regeneration feature of Hydra becomes a metaphor of the printmaking technique, which has multiple original pieces.
