Ascent, 2005. Print on Fine Art German Etching paper limited by a certificate of authenticity. The certificate of authenticity is signed by the artist.
The artwork was developed from the film more than 10 years ago. We did a lot of procedures including handcraft and AI enhancement to make this work come true, from a low-resolution photo taken 15 years ago, and make it shine on Fine Art German Etching paper. It’s Fun to Try and Error many times in this experimental process. It is not perfect, but the imperfection made it Art.
Story of Artwork:
2015, we spent a week in Xi'an. It was an amazing trip to go around the ancient city and the countryside, to experience without worries. We were young and bold, our tomorrow never knows, we all can't see the path of life and all remain unknown.
As an artist and observer, my talent is seeing things from a different angle. I've been through a long long hardship time When I was young, without hope and direction. In 2017, I decided to quit my job, and follow my heart to pursue what I really love to do in my life.
I use my passion, my love, my artwork to tell my world and story. I use Arts as the media to transmit messages to others, to the people I love, to anyone who is willing to see the truth, the beauty in the world, the light in the darkness.
That's the story of this artwork.
