Artist Statement:

“There have been great changes in China in the past 30 years. The cities are like big construction sites speeding their construction pacec to catch up with the rest of the world. All of this appears particularly outstanding in China’s coastal areas. A multitude of countrymen leave their native places to go there. While urbanization continues to accelerate growth and draw people away from their native homes, people’s spiritual lives may suffer; losing the feeling of a real home.” — Zhang Xiao
