STATEMENT

Humanity and nature are part of the universe.

I use natural materials in my sculpture to draw the connection between human and nature. Wood instills feelings of warmth, serenity, and relief in people. Stone reminds us of the history of earth. From the aspect of the environmental protection, natural materials are environmentally friendly as it emits no pollutants, and are familiar resource that has been utilized for millennia.  

Nowadays we are facing serious environmental problems such as global warming, waste and resource depletion. We have to preserve nature and save our earth for our future generations and for all living being.

I hope my sculpture provides an opportunity for people to think about humanity’s connection to nature, and reminds us that we are all part of earth’s family.
