“In my IBEX Masterpiece, I wanted to talk about the rising power of women in China, especially among the young generation, and the complexity of the relationship between two people and, in particular, lovers, such as husband and wife. ⁣ ⁣

I’ve chosen to call this work ‘Datura’, after a flower known for its beauty and thorns. Joy and pain, love and anger, attachment and annoyance, they come together.” ⁣
