From the artist

I come from Beijing. I feel Australia is heavens living: particulary here, Tasmania. Mountains and rivers make the land. What is heavens living? Peaceful, gentle, quiety, clean air, clean water, stable politics. For my eyes Tasmania is not rich but do we need wealth? Better to enjoy nature; to enjoy culture; to enjoy love and relaxation. So, people living here, as in my landscape, with  clear water and mountains like the dragon dancing.
