About The Artwork

Most of my animal series works are anthropomorphic expressions. I use the shell image of animals to express people with different roles. They are all in a certain identity and environment, showing a side that transcends animality. "King" is a joking title, and I exaggeratedly increased the Taishi chair, which symbolizes power and status, to heighten the sense of inapproachability. This is a young rhino with a naive body but wants to show seriousness. He is still immature and sits in a position that does not belong to him. This pretentious arrogance makes him appear ungrounded and bluff. The dynamics are also cramped and tense. Being at a high altitude is sometimes a kind of mental pressure caused by artificially pulling the seedlings, and sometimes it is also a kind of fever in an unconscious state. A lot of times we fantasize about what would happen if we were in that remote position, and the real, high-flying person is sometimes bullied like a foolish ignorant. Everyone is in the chain of contempt caused by the class nature of this kind of relationship between top and bottom. The key is to stay awake at all times, not to be led by rhythm, not to be a member of the rabble. The sense of playfulness and contradiction created by my work "The King" is based on this thinking. Inner pride and surface peace may achieve an indescribable harmony.

The aesthetic temperament of the East has the greatest influence and inspiration for me in its charm and strength. The eastern classic sculptures that we can see today give me the greatest impression of the shape of "circle", from the lines to the shapes, all present a kind of "circle" wisdom. I am an uncompromising fan of oriental aesthetics, and I practice it in my own artistic creation. When I was a child, my parents and family gave me a very relaxed and positive childhood. Outside of my studies, I liked to study and make "weapons" and "martial arts secrets". The sword represents my spiritual will, which can stifle evil, promote justice, and express my inner free soul. This is probably my very romantic "Martial Arts Dream" at first, a kind of spiritual pursuit that is divorced from reality. I think that my creative content may have already laid the groundwork for the transition from children to teenagers. Teenagers are always pinned on hopes for the future. Everyone has a "rebellious period" in the sociological sense, why are we defined as "rebellious" and "rebellious"? Because we initially formed our own worldview, began to have thoughts, and tried to integrate knowledge and action. What is a knight? They are a group of free people who came into being when the ruling class in ancient times oppressed and could not solve the problem. They are full of justice, love to fight injustice, and be kind and righteous. Later, these shining points were gradually integrated into the bones and blood of many Chinese people and became a kind of inheritance, which penetrated into various fields, and groups of people who contributed great energy to history and society appeared. Huo Qubing, Yan Zhenqing, Wen Tianxiang, Yu Qian, Wang Yangming, etc., either in temples or in the arena, all of their actions and deeds have the characteristics of knights. A great soul who never conforms to the crowd. The knights in my works are young and mature, a little melancholy, and full of deep thoughts. This image is my exploration of some information about the depths of power, born in the process of self-introverted digging, cultivation, and output. temperament and state of thinking. I hope that he can carry a kind of concern that transcends his own likes and dislikes and has a bigger pattern. These works born from my hands are another "I", but they are stronger than me, can do things I can't do, say things I can't say, think, tell, and talk with a chivalrous spirit.
