About 7 years ago, I emigrated from China to Holland. It’s fair to say it was the turning point of my life. Migrating injected in me a kind of fresh blood and air. Since then I re-examine my identity and history, constantly refreshing and reconstructing signs and symbols. As much inside myself as out of it. Therefore I create a new order by which a sharp contrast is possible between the four ways I respond to my (new) life: my relation to the brutal reality, my fantasies about it, all of my memories of time gone by and my orientation towards art related to the form of a complex structure or landscape.
Along my working line, I focus on identity, objects and environment. I emphasize transference, transmission and transformation. I want to capture crosshatched, dramatic and meaningful visual impacts as a venue for my social concerns and questions.
