Artist Statement :

—- sometimes I can not resist anything at all

so I will follow them into the dark——-

slash my heart to crumble.

Life is empty I try to seeks the relationship between

I and the things surround me.

The meaning of sorrows and beauty

—in the middle of the room nothing to proceed

I sat with a pensive as well as stagnant of time.

We have a different fate. Behind the sorrow is the sorrow.

All we are the painfulness and we hide them and wrap it

with –fear –courage – weak—

Life is vulnerable

There’re easy to lack — tear and extinct.
