TO MAKE THE WORLD BETTER
ONLINE EXHIBITION Vol. 4
Art has never been absent from any significant moments.
Artists play an important role in humanity. Not only are we able to see the accumulation of history from the artists' creation, but also feel the humanistic care and emotional commonality from it. The audience can feel the inspiration of aesthetics and philosophy from the artworks, and the artworks also arouse people's sense of social responsibility and pursuit for a better life.
In recent years, some events with far-reaching impact have occurred around the world, such as the SARS virus that swept the world in 2003, the Wenchuan earthquake in 2008, the Fukushima and Christchurch earthquakes in 2011, and especially the current COVID-19 since 2020, leading to great trauma throughout the world. Therefore, we hope to encourage artists from a variety of cultural backgrounds to create profound works of art to inspire the wider public to overcome current difficulties and fulfill their lives.

Since her very first visit to Christchurch in 2000, she has been inspired by the people here. She could not help falling in love with this amazing city when she decided to move from Beijing in 2017. Christchurch has seen turbulent events in recent years, but throughout many hardships, people here have shown their bravery, honesty, and kindness. They esteem collectiveness, hospitality, and generosity, while also showing a deep care and respect for each other. Bright, colorful vistas, and gardens resplendent with beautiful flowers and trees, fill the city’s landscape. The majesty of the sun and ocean waves bathe its fields and shores. What’s more, the genuine and endearing warmth of its people embraces and welcomes all. It is this unyielding spirit of Christchurch that has encouraged and inspired her to create the artworks. The artworks were exhibited from May to July 2021 in FoGuangYuan Art Gallery in Christchurch.
