“Art is to sharing and connect each others in the nature surround us. We may start with simple line, but later more complicated life. The journey, maybe in my mind, to the beginning of where we started, it's probably the way to get the chance of restart our life. This is also strongly against to the words “Nothing can do as a new in Art”.
(From the curator note of The Segments)
