As a sculptor, I would like to use my art form to describe a different type of art form that has a strong attachment with language and writing. People all familiar with an idea that most philosophical thoughts are delivered through out words and language. Maybe one day a certain art form can alternate the language and do the same job as a major communication tool.

I want my audiences to purely enjoy these “character-like sculpture” aesthetically, not to be limited to figuring out what do these pieces look like whatsoever or the actual meaning behind. I also intend to give native Chinese audiences to re-think the stereotypical meanings of our language, the language that we use everyday even if we come to a foreign country. Can art deliver messages to people from all around the world without translation (or a statement)? Can people see art without ideology behind?

I am still seeking the Tao of art. I know it should be something for you to sense, something that is just unspeakable.
