"漸 (zim6)" with the meaning of gradually, step by step, a little by little, such as life and artwork creation are the span of cumulative process. As Feng Zikai mentioned in his article "漸 (zim6)", the essence of gradually process is time. Time, we are not able to grasp it. We always struggle in the past, get lost in the future and tangle in the reality. Mr. Feng tried to further construe the word of “gradually” with a metaphor. When we read books in the dusk, even the environment becomes darker and darker, our eyesight will finally get used to read under this unfavourable situation and we may forget about the time in the end. In this exhibition, I will try to use my artworks to record down the marks of "漸 (zim6)" in our daily life. We never need to accustom to the darkness; our belief will drive us to go further, see in the darkness and find what we truly strive for gradually.
