  • Catalogue Essay

    “Each boy or girl today will have an album of his or her up-growth. But I only have these five small photos taken before the age of seven. This blank belongs not only to me, but also to the whole Chinese generation of mine. I tried to fill up this gap with my painting, and to purge the loneliness of my childhood. As a magic drug, it makes my childhood seem perfect. Therefore, in fact, this series is a complement to my family album.”
