In the past one year and more, I have a lot of time to be alone. I often go for a walk in the garden near my home, so flowers, grass, trees, fish and sunshine become my familiar friends. Toward evening, the golden sunlight makes the leaves shine, and the sunlight slants through the dancing leaves and falls on the ground, and this is my favorite scene. in my view, they all seem to express the warm, positive and hopeful meaning. Where does this consciousness come from? The cultural background, the social environment, or the intuitive feeling of its appearance? Thus,”Object”, “Spiritual world”, “Symbol” have become the focus of my exploration.
Koi has rich cultural connotation in Chinese tradition, which is a symbol of friendship, love and wealth. Now, Koi refers to the luckiest person or thing, or the person or thing that brings good luck. So I try to combine Koi and amulet elements, and using soft fabrics and precious metals by means of embroidery and metalworking, to express warm feeling and good hints.
