Artist Statement


Why do you stare at me like that?

Like my skin should be smooth but scaly
Like my hair should be shorter but longer
Like my face should be flawless but freckly
Like my bones should be strong but fragile,

A letdown.

Like I should be hidden but shining
Like I should be desireless but longing
Like I should be silent but singing
Like I should be dead but growing,

The resurgence.

Come,
Flame me in love and tell my soul is golden.


为何如此看着我?

好似我肌肤本该光滑但却粗陋
好似我头发本该简短但却冗长
好似我脸颊本该无瑕但却斑驳
好似我骨肉本该强健但却脆弱,

大失所望。

好似我本应隐迹却在发光
好似我本应无欲却在渴望
好似我本应沉默却在歌唱
好似我本该死去却在成长,

死而复燃。

快,
焚我于爱火,谓我灵魂之金黄。
