work, she says:
"Many artworks are based on the continuous study and experience
of nature. Nature is at the root of art's subject matter and has provided
us with infinite possibilities of creation. Under the theme of Plant
images, my works contain various meanings and symbols to express the
author's memories of their daily lives. Plants change their form at
each stage of creation: seed, plants sprout, spread roots and bloom.
this course of change gives rise th fantasy about unpredictable organisms
and organic forms. In my work, I actively express the organic movements
of plants with their mysterious colours and constantly changing forms,
crating texture with the materiality and transparency of silicone. I
always try to express the living in my work so most of my pieces have
rich colours and unique shapes."
