ARTIST STATEMENT


There is a quiet beauty in the moment that triggers personal memories. I am interested in preserving memories and keeping a record of them so they do not fade over time. I also want to show memories in decay, as a way of memorializing them and showing the process of their slow disappearance from our consciousness.

 

Collecting and drawing found objects are the ways I record my life. With a natural instinct to extract meaning from narrative, I also find these activities to be the inspiration of my work. I incorporate the drawings and illustrations, which come from my personal life experience into the surface treatment and imaging techniques of glass. To represent the nostalgic feeling and memories of certain times and places that I do not want to let go of.


回忆通过时间沉淀,积累。慢慢变得厚重且值得人们去回味。它充斥在每一个人的生活中,不经意间带给人们感动,伤感,抑或痛苦。在不同的时代与空间里为人生结点上划下一记记标点。小至生活百态,大至生存环境,尽管记忆在人生长流中不断被生活空间的转换所模糊,然而那些重要的残断印象却也小心翼翼的被保存下来。我想以玻璃为媒介去捕捉这样的瞬间,将一个个故事以叙事的形式纪录下来。努力去将余下的碎片编织起来,还给它应属于自己的安宁。当玻璃退火之后从石膏中取出,它的表面留有一种经受过时间与温度历炼后褪去的温和感。时而柔软时而脆弱,却坚韧的存在在自然界之中。光线透过玻璃折射出来,就像是凝固的瞬间与封存的记忆再次被唤醒。也算是我对自己,对周围的人,环境,以及我所经历过的生活的一种真诚的回馈。
