     I often see the charm in sparkling dust. Dust has always been the substance closest to our life. It’s nature

    and everywhere. It joins cycle of human’s body with the breath… When it falls down,accumulating into a thick

    and dirty form at the same time becoming so light which often being ignored. I also see how urban  dirty form

    at the same time becoming so light which often being ignored. I also see how urban development  changed

    the dust’s nature and lightness, all becomes complex, it’s synonym of desire, disease and desperation...

   Through gathering dust, burnish and polish it repeatedly,the canvas showed a mirror effect, the question

    I’d like  to raise is exactly what you see through it ?  At the beginning of my creation of this series, I tried

    to use the simplest media, only dust and glue, and labor myself heavily to achieve the mirror effect that

    I wish to show in  the work. This is how dust eventually is fixed on the canvas, losing its lightness forever

    but carrying an extra mission of reflecting what things truly are.

    Zhang Zhenyu
