                                                                                                                                            ¡¡¡¡The recent global exchanges between China and the rest of the world has deeply affected her cultural and societal frameworks, the changes has resulted in conflicts in society and altered my ideas towards art and its appreciation. Nature is the expression of the universe, art the manifestation of thoughts. A painting is not art, merely a tool for art. I do not wish to invent a new style or artistic form, instead I draw on the richness of our heritage of art, using what is traditionally considered art, and what is not usually considered art, to present what I call ¡°juxtaposition in a group¡±. A grouping with a pretty open standard, yet it is one that manifests conflicts in values that currently exists side by side in our world today. Art is intricately linked to one¡¯s understanding of the world and art has the power to go beyond what is. To critique and shape our cultural environment, I employ various methods and media to present different time-spans on the medium. Because the selected medium itself has a certain history, the positioning of this time and space is also very important. In constructing, developing and regrouping the various histories in my works, the boundary of history is removed and a new value judgement is presented. Through this approach, the time aspect of my works is accentuated. Furthermore, I enjoy floating between my history and your history.
