For nothing can be sole or whole/ That has not been rent (Yeats)
I am interested in recreating the visual reality through memories and imagination. Visual world has been complex, chaotic, shifting and decentered since I was a very young perceiver, living inside an enormous yet crowded traditional Minnan House with my mother, grandmother and seven other families, growing up with an acute sense of dislocation, disorientation, and divided identity, when China was undergoing a dramatic change in the context of globalization. In my current work, it was reflected in the accumulation of small oil pastel strokes, uncertain dynamic boundaries and the searching of forces beyond the appearance. The world brought into being by both discovery and creation.
