Interested in traditional Japanese aesthetics, craftsmanship and work ethics have always been a passion of mine to research in my artistic practice. In finding a thorough understanding of the formation of Asian identity, I focus my practice on process art that is repetitive and labor intensive, which often involve an abstract place using extreme self-restraint and self-discipline from a very personal perspective. 

Throughout my practice, I slowly developed an essential question that is the foundation behind my paper works: to what extent can I, as a Chinese contemporary artist, truly master and be able to recreate the Japanese traditional philosophies with a respectful amount of personal interpretation, why is it important for me to do so? Centering my research around this yet unsolved question, my art demonstrates a collective understanding of everything from ancient Japanese aesthetics to modern Minimalism. 

I seek to create a harmonious balance of juxtapositions.
