Each person’s perception system is unique, my creations come from my personal imagination about the external objective world, and some of it comes from the observation of Chinese culture in the past. Through the works, I hope to capture fragments from the stretch long and unbroken time. Through the continuous recognition of materials to convey the dull present, It’s like an operation. It’s like a calm incision, I hope to touch the most subtle emotion in human nature. By carefully intervening in it, the material becomes the medium and writing of my thinking. With the cooling of glass liquid, time is fixed in the inner space of the work, solidifying the perception and emotion of fragments in the work. This is like a way of recording, like a piece of prose, recording my inner changes.
