I was born in the late 1980s, as the only child of an intellectual middle-class family from one of the most economically developed parts of China, Shenzhen, which is the first special economic zone after the Chinese economic reform. I grew up in a highly materialist, atheistic environment. For many years when I was growing up, I was seeking for the truth and the meaning of life in philosophies and religions, until I committed to Christianity in the age of 20.
I believe in Christian Eschatology and The Doctrine of Original Sin. There is a Chinese phrase that describes my profound feelings about these theological topics. We bemoan the state of the universe and pity the fate of humankind. In other words, a deep sorrow in me comes from the fact that I realized there is not much I could do to affect the outcome of mankind. Some of my pieces address human limitations and imperfections through putting the audience in awkward situations. In general, my artworks discuss human naturals through chosen psychological or theological theories, perceptions, senses and reactions.
