Bricks, from the “Open Wall”
This piece demonstrates the renovation of the artist in representing its wonderful beauty. The Great Wall, symbolizing the strongest defence against enemies, is constructed with the most delicate and transparent Venetian bricks. A transparent wall is a beautiful and sensible representation of the borderless spiritual link between people in modern cities. Furthermore, the Open Wall may inspire rich imagination of the visitors-the city walls have been opened, and the Berlin Wall has been pushed down, and the spiritual walls of cultural separation have been opened through internet.
