I was born in Wenzhou city Zhejiang province. Since childhood I have traveled a great deal throughout China where I was exposed to the rich history of Chinese philosophy, the many spiritual practices existing for centuries and the impact that has had on the history of art.  From my earliest days as an art student I have had a deep fascination with the ancient Taoism reverence for nature and balance. In my opinion this has not been explored meaningfully in relation to Contemporary Chinese Art. My work explores and further develops these concepts and their potential to gain a new worth and function in this globalized Capitalism as a way to slow us down. Another recurring idea that exists within my work comes from the term Xu Shi, which is frequently used by art critics, as a reference to everything in comparative relationships. This term, like my work, has multiple meanings in many situations.  In my understanding, it has its resource from the Yin and Yang notion of the I Ching; the quintessential source for understanding contemporary Chinese social phenomena. The Chinese are living under the impact of it even today in the 21st century.The salient objective of my journey as an artist is to penetrate the foundation of Chinese art history and culture and transform it into novel presentations in a contemporary context.
