Notes from the Artist:

With this series, I have again returned to portraiture; however, instead of self-portraits, I have created portraits of my adult son. Like in my older works, I’ve obscured the figure’s face using scarves, paper and surgical masks. But with this new subject, I am now commenting on social changes as they affect a younger generation, one that has not lived through various upheavals, such as the Cultural Revolution, but is also constantly being pulled between its heritage and day-to-day life.
