I often see the charm in sparkling dust.
Dust has always been the substance closest to our life. It’s nature and everywhere. It joins cycle of human’s body with the breath……When it falls down, accumulating into a thick and dirty form at the same time becoming so light which often being ignored.
I also see how urban development changed the dust’s nature and lightness, all becomes complex, it’s synonym of desire, disease and desperation……
Through gathering dust, burnish and polish it repeatedly, the canvas showed a mirror effect, the question I’d like to raise is exactly what you see through it?
This is how dust eventually is fixed on the canvas, losing its lightness forever, but carrying an extra mission of reflecting what things truly are.
