Reborn

Artwork Details

2020 was not only affected by the epidemic but also the occurrence of forest fires. The ecological environment is seriously polluted. Part of the creative inspiration comes from one’s own profession, recording current experiences through the works. Currently an architectural modeler.

For the sake of rapid development, human beings choose to use extreme methods to obtain benefits. Misconceptions are gradually rationalized by human greed. Chose to use charcoal, black pastels, and pencils, through the colours black and white to describe the eclipse of the burning of the fire. In Chinese traditional culture, the “stone lion” is commonly known as “Wind Lion Lord”, which is a symbol of bravery, strength and protection. So, this is to imagine that in harsh environments, animals are “reborn”.
