MSAC Individual Artist Award (IAA)2013
Artist StatementThe riddled paths in our lives combine the reality and imaginary world. These broken bits link to each other and complete us in some ways. The untouchable and invisible time and space overlap the inner light of human, which allude to the unpredictable challenges and growth. Illusion annexes and extracts the thoughts into the real world. Those elements in the universe are expanding the unspeakable but fascinating messages. I am devoted to unfold my view of life and seek the balance between the existence and illusion through my artwork.
