To me, jewellery is a way to express my inner thoughts. I think it is always hard to describe the felling of sense, but jewellery is a good way to make your feeling become something realistic.
Splitting, tearing, lesion and hidden, these words filled my brain in these two months. I suppose that sometimes life is worse than death. My face got an inflammation because of the tearing wounds, which stimulated my sensory nerves and made me feel that I had no chance of recovery.
So, my first collection <Lesion> was inspired by a girl who has the same skin disease and wants to hide it with foundation as me. When she wiped off part of her makeup with a paper towel, I thought about: “Underneath the beautiful skin lies the immeasurable evil.” So, I melt acrylic to Imitate the decay of the skin and letting people face their true appearance.
The second series <Cells> was developed from the first project. In order to be better distinguished and studied, cancer cells under a microscope are highlighted in bright colours. It is very beautiful when it is seen by the audience. They are waiting for an opportunity to become cancerous. When I first learned about the little cells from books as a child, I started to fantasize the body is the big world where these small cells exist.
