About my hometown

This image shows that what comes to my mind when I think about my hometown. Personally, I like to recognize a place by the map and simultaneously, the plan of my hometown is a very typical map. The white blank square is the place where I grew up but unfortunately, it did not exist any longer due to the process of urbanization, that is many small houses called Si Heyuan were destroyed.

Elegance beyond decay

The decaying stems always touch me that they still remain their straight pose to fight with the of the world. 

Behind the beauty

This series of works is about my thinking of the thing behind the beauty. 

Daily love

Just the plant that accompanies me everyday. We are always easy to notice the people around us. However, there is as well a relationship between the object and us. About the belonging.
