This is a diary about pain.
Young souls wandered, they finally learn to face the ugly topic, with the mask of beauty.
This is my sixteen to eighteen years old traces.” Bing Nv
“Embers is a single-trip journey through a cure.
In order to face life, the artist went from experiments and encounters using the photographic medium for several years. The expression of feelings with art starts a long time ago, and the mix of beauty and disease acts like poetry of the old centuries, it’s a frame for remind us what is important, what deserves to be kept, and how fragile is the real beauty. It’s not a trick of sacred paintings, using pain and blood to engage audience in compassion. The blood here is the blood of life, reminding that we are alive.
Embers drive us, in an almost chronological timeline, by the river of life, rubbing and colliding itself on the rough walls of a preconceived social system, skinning out feelings and dismembering the innocence and the naiveness as we go forward.”
