"The City narratives and its system of inner transformation such as its human component are aesthetically and discursively represented in my work. I express in my paintings, the relationships between stable and mutable, between permanent and ephemeral, while building a reflection space about the limits of domestic elements within a moving scene into an undetermined and generalized space, open to endless directions which exceed the architectural plan-view. Through such technique, perspective amplification, I state the territory crisis as a unity within time, becoming the architect of eternal transformation. From another angle, in most of my work is present there, the invalidation of the local, favoring the global territory, as if the dividing or geographical lines would be displaced by the globalized model, understanding urbanism at a parallel level to the interior in a scene guided by the postmodern access."

"我的作品中的美学和话语,都是为了表现城市叙事及其人的内部转化体系在。我努力在作品中表达了稳定与变化之间,永久与短暂之间的关系,同时在一个移动的场景中构建了一个关于本土元素极限的反射空间,进入一个不确定的,统一化的空间,可以超越建筑规划 - 视图。通过这样的技法,透视放大,我表达了领土危机作为时间的统一,成为永恒转型的建筑师。从另一个角度来看,在我的大部分作品中,本土是无效化的,全球化的领土是更有利的,仿佛分裂或地理的线路将被全球化的模式所取代,出现在一个平行于由后现代的场景中."
