Entry Description

Relevant antecedents are what make up my ideas, which are natural; not forced. Fragments, traces, blurry initial impressions from the day-to-day usually appear in my mind spontaneously, transiently or long lasting. All of the unnamed fragments became the origin and the instinct of my work. To me, it’s a way to perceive the inner heart and a projection of psychology through the process. Utilizing the framework of art practice helps me to understand my own nature. As a person who came from the east with the experience of geographic displacement and time limitations, the past two years have been the most unique of my life. Now at a fresh turning point, the time has come to re-examine the origin of my thought, as impermanence and instability become the subtext of my work.
