Original artwork description:

Out of discarded objects like spangles, scraps of cloth and paper, I produce ,a collage work on canvas or hemp. I combine colors and cuts and put these objects together on the picture surface.

These tiny objects are assembled together to create a sort of microcosm, calling back the memory of my childhood village where houses were stuck together on the slopes of hills. In my neighborhood, varying size and looks were built very closely to each other.





I re-create a village of my own dream, a small utopia, where people are not affluent but are close to each other, sharing things and encouraging each other through each other's ups and downs of their lives. These pieces are put together by pasting or stitching to form a community of their own. The roofs, walls, and windows of the houses are replaced with scraps of cloth, corrugated paper, and PVC mirrors respectively.





My work can be interpreted as an extension of childhood plays and schoolroom art. My work retains its purity and innocence, yet gives a poignant statement on the reality of contemporary society filled with isolation, displacement, indifference, and alienation.

By these warm and ingenuous works, I also expresses my yearning for the co-existence and harmony of people from a variety of races, genders, social statuses, and wealth.
