In that era, human bodies rendered in sculptures were not human beings for real, and they were merely employed by artists to represent a variety of dramatic dynamics, activities, miens and tensions. The figures that have appeared in my paintings are neither a certain person nor any specific characters. They are never entitled with a truly existent identity, and they are enclosed in creation. To me, an illusory human being is in fact a true existence, or even a truer existence. Some previous critiques allege that figures in my works have represented the confusion and alienation of the new generations, but actually I think I wanted to express more.
