MASK SERIES 1994-2003
My work of Mask Series reflects the contradiction
between outer human appearance and inner substance, between desire
for love and misunderstanding in everyday life. As we know, we all
wear many different Masks to face the other people in the Society,
we sometimes even wear the mask to ourselves. Such contradictions
have always existed within us, from remote antiquity to modern times.
In my work, I focus on the identity of gender as well as the ambiguity
of gender roles in todays society.
In my work, I do not propose any resolution to the
problems. I prefer to present the actual symbols of struggle, contradiction
and ambiguous emotional issues, and allow the viewers to choose
their own solutions. Conceptually, the principal focus of my work
is the conflict between human instinct and lofty ideals, between
fantasy and reality. Issues of spiritual transformation and
personal experience are my constant themes.
