My practice ranges from media art to paintings. Using mediums such as photography, video, painting, drawing, or by mixed media, my creations express my innate feelings and act as a way for me to find my true self. At the same time, it shows how I observe and react to my surroundings. To me, art is a channel of communication from the inner me to the outside world. Therefore, different mediums are the distinctive tools to achieve it. Not limited to a specific material, I keep exploring how various art forms could convey my ideas and feelings about the world. It is easy to overlook something around us, but indeed they are meaningful and attractive in their own way. Art makes me to observe it in a subtle way. Besides, I think art is about imagination, so my current practice also involves viewing things in simple, abstract forms or creating imaginary scenes. This reveals my imagination to the audience, and also leaves them room for imagination. Also, as a way of simplification, the landscape to me may seem to be different color blocks. I paint them by using the simple elements, such as dots, lines and shapes. During the process of creation, it is like a way to explore and express the world in a different way, and the world in my mind.
