"Lost But Profound" Exhibition

I am a part of this exhibition, "Los But Profound" exhibition at PS Zask Gallery. The opening reception was placed last Saturday, and the exhibition will be exhibited until April 8th, Sun.

The plant dress, "Yesterday on the Back, Sprout through the Chest" and my newest work, "I almost could reach you" are exhibited, and I had so many great feedback from audiences.

All the art works are created by the artists who work with found objects.
I was amazed how the artists applied all sorts of found objects to create such incredible works of art!
I strongly recommend you to visit the gallery if you happen to be in the area. PS Zask is a beautiful space to appreciate arts.

New Friends...

I first created this tiny dolls about a year ago, and those girls have been giving me so much joy and inspirations...
They are supposed to be the modern interpretation of Japanese traditional doll, Kokeshi, which shows reservedness and humbleness. They have been such wonderful messengers of mine :)

"Wait for Me after"

After the piece, "Wait for Me after" was happily adopted by a collector, I got pretty lonely without them, and I created new friends... 

Let me introduce you...

"Sing with Me Not"

"I Love You, I Love You Not"

"Promises between Indigo and Tangerine"

And, good news is, you will get to meet them if you come by at CAFAM between Feb 7, Tue and 12, Sun, 12 - 3pm!
Please  stop by if you have a chance :)
