The Flowery Memories

Photographic Works by Ziwei Wang

SBS Gallery

Feb. 16-March 15

My art works are based on a belief that photography is the evidence of sight which can be addressed and healed through observation. I don’t want to just document the body. The face isn't what is important with a human being, it's the soul. I create imagery to help navigate and formulate my right to see, to accommodate the positioning of my soul in the world.
I think the good thing about art is that it gives me a great chance to express myself. For me, it had been a great period of time to learn from myself, and tell the rest of the world about my stories. Like some art works I made thought out the year, shows a great deal of my thoughts, and memory.
And finally, I want to thank my professor Don Anton for bringing me into photographic world, I also want to express my appreciation to all of my friends for their support, especially to Fei Wang, Xiaozhen, and Qinjin for being there when I needed them.
