Artist Statement

Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated. 世上本无事, 庸人自扰之 - Confucius

Every organism on Earth is related. If you were to trace back the lineage of everything and anything that ever existed, they would all converge to a single point of origin – the beginning of life. One theory suggests that life began in a warm little pond. In a letter to Joseph Hooker (1871), Charles Darwin expressed his speculations on the subject but nothing more. Swim forward to the 1950s where Harold Urey and Stanley Miller tested the famous hypothesis with resounding success! Although the theory has been proven to be possible, the nature of this question means that a simple “yes” or “no” answer is not enough, and reality is much more complex than that. In fact, life is a series of trials and errors, and what matters most is not how many times you’ve fallen but how many times you’ve gotten back up! In Chinese mythology there’s a story about a golden koi fish who swam upstream the Yellow River in China trying to get to the top of the waterfall, after 100 years of jumping he finally succeeded and was rewarded by the gods. Moral of the story? No matter how many times you tumble, keep persevering, the best moments of your life might be just a splash away.
