My parents named me Zhou Yi, the same name as The Book of Changes in the five classics of Chinese literature. The Book of Changes is a book in which the Chinese people recorded their life experiences with abstract symbols in ancient times, analyzed principles with the change theory of Yin and Yang, and tried to explain phenomena in the universe through the pattern of contradiction and resemblance.
I've long been identified by this name, which has significantly impacted my art. After documenting my emotions, I endeavor to assign them multiple meanings. My artworks often feature mountains and water, both of which have come to define my spiritual habitat. When I create the process, I think about how each component might support the others, yet I've noticed that the world is full of paradoxes.
