Artwork Statement
There is nothing we can get hold of in our lives. Just as nobody can stop the sun from setting. So, what is eternity? The colours we see are formed by the joint of fates in the sky, on earth and in human beings. These colours change, sometimes rapidly and sometimes slowly as they come in an ever-changing form. It is like people meeting and parting because of the change of fate. To be impermanent is the law of this world. As a result, I, who is still alive, understand that nothingness is existence. Our lives are like the colours in the sky – impermanence is the nature of eternity.
For every change in my life, I look to the sky. The different colours appear in front of my eye and become the marks of my life.
