"Beautiful and haunting."

        --David Skidmore, GRAMMY® Award-winning percussionist,     GRAMMY-nominated composer

cutting, engraving and stitching, the artist explores the process of destruction, healing and creation. From the formal language, she cracks the code of human existence and explores the laws of the "Jiang Hu/complicated human world" in a relaxed manner. "
        -- Zhao Wenling, Curator

"A unique take similar to paper cutouts, but instead of cutting paper she cuts the canvas itself and layers 2 canvases on top of each other to add a dynamic element to her work."

         -- LA Artist Podcast
