Raised in Hong Kong and well-nurtured under the umbrella of my parents' unconditional love, I constantly try to swallow the moon by weaving emotions into art and I always dream of myself being able to breathe out poetry.


As a fan of experimental surreal films (with Maya Deren’s Meshes of the Afternoon being my favourite), I see beauty in weirdly unsettling figures. I am particularly interested in the study of dream – including both Freudian’s interpretation of dream, and Master Zhuang’s Taoist concept of the inseparable relationship between dream and reality. Disturbing motifs, such as water with floating eyes and human without eyeballs, often appear in my nightmares, and I usually find inspirations from them. The poetic possibility offered by one’s subconscious mind is hence tangled with my art and I wish to invite more people into my world flooded with emotions – be it sorrow, joy or uncanniness.
