There are few days in a week, I travel to my studio in a quiet village from the bustling city. The minibus goes along a long narrow road across the golf course to the remote village where my studio located. On the way on the minibus, I feel like travelling across the parallel universe far far away from the messy reality to a simple peaceful village where you can find harmonious coexistence of all lives and the universe.
“At first the opening was very narrow, barely wide enough for one person to go in. After a dozen steps, it opened into a flood of light. He saw before his eyes a wide, level valley, with houses and fields and farms. There were bamboos and mulberries; farmers were working and dogs and chickens were running about.”, <The Peach Colony>.
After a thousand year, people longing for a place like the Peach Colony again in the highly urbanized city. I transform the feeling of this desire into imagery and reveal it in between brush and ink.
