Silent Fireworks (2014)

From the title of the book by author Ai-a. In the book, he describes the incredible abundance and variety of flora; all the flowers, plants and trees in our lives. In this series I try to convey the thoughts and feelings of the author, his concerns for nature and our environment.

Because I was touched by the emotional bonds between the author and mother nature, it inspired me to create this series of works and hold an exhibition to bring awareness to the beautiful variety of plants in Taiwan; a point of view with warmth and affinity for the silent fireworks that exists, calmly surrounding our lives.
