This is a photo contemporary collage project based on modern art. Greatly influenced by natural figures and artificial textures. I love to collect black and white photos of female portraits, cutting out the parts and stripping them from the original context, combining them with the abstract design figure, to get a new composition.
This project is about 'she', every single piece has a unique female image, and each composition has a different character. Mysterious women are always a very attractive point to me.
Ideally, behind every independent female figure, I want the audience to see a gentle but strong female image. Its basic sense is to make her seem to have life, when she smiles or looks up, every move is gentle and beautiful.
"Memory" is another word I would like to mention in this project. Behind every one of my works, there is a memory of different-sometimes or that one day. It almost mirrors my time, my thoughts, and my personality. like a quote from Kurt Cobain's journals "I use bits and pieces of other's personalities to form my own." I am always thinking about who am I or who should I be, and finally I find the answer in art. When you lose yourself in life, thankfully I could express myself in these artworks.
