Siyu Dong, Mom and me II

Artist Statement: ltlamceasitp & ptisaecmaltl:
The Surrealism artists of those styles broke with tradition and logic, and even created a time and space beyond “waking consciousness”. While studying Dadaism and Surrealism, I read Sigmund Freud’s The Interpretation of Dreams, which fascinated me. Some Dadaists and Surrealists expressed their understanding of unreal mental states in the form of “exquisite corpse game”, so I invited my friends to play this drawing game as well. Finally through everyone’s drawings I created my own series “Erbts Maaudo (about dreams)”.

Mom and me:
Life always sucks, and it always brings us stress and challenges in an invisible way. But luckily, my mother has always been there to support me and protect me, no matter where, when or what happens. So I abstracted the act of leaning on my mother’s back and her hugging me and created these two pieces to express the love of a mother for her child.
