Sadness is not a thing that anyone wants, but happiness is. I have experienced some sadness, both happening with myself and others. I therefore realize that sadness does not stay with us for too long. It comes and goes away, and it would always come again with new stories.
When I look back into times sadness happened, some of them still burn into my heart, some of them make me smile nowadays, some of them result in delight and relaxation. Sadness has passed…and I can overcome it.
Art always reflect the appearance of its artist. This series of work thus consists of factors resulted from my mind: my perception of things that come and go in my life, my
remembrance, and stories that I was a part in. If my
remembrance is considered sadness, then I would say it is sweet suffering.
