Solo exhibition 2011: '(e)utopia- because we are what we are

How to live is the question in utopia, a nonexistent place reflecting human aspirations for individual and social perfection. Utopian dreaming highlights the paradox between humans as abstract thinkers and as social/antisocial animals. This series deals metaphorically with the complexity of our attempts to resolve this paradox, and our human failures to do so.

Some early works from this series were exhibited in the China International Galleries Exposition, at Beijing in 2009
