Artist's Statement

The series of work I did is a story collection of coal miners.

It is black, white and gold.

It is about loss, mourning and memorial.

It is the abstractive unwanted beauty, but from the bloody truth.
It is between evidence and imagination.
It is using the journalist’s approach to challenge the journalism system.
It happened in my own village an unknown place in China, but it is a story of everybody.
