Art Action: The missing link

This art action tried to create a space for people to turn their attention and find their own missing link with nature.

In my previous works, I have painted portraits of people and covered them with black hair; this black hair has a strong presence of wild animals which are part of nature.  When human started to build city, the animals homeland becomes our homeland, and their once in a while appearance in our city becomes intrusion. And that leads me to think more deeply the relationships of human beings and nature.

I think we all have something stored inside us that still link us to nature, what is it for me? We all love nature, we are happy to see grassland and flowers, we love to see sunrise and sunset, we love to see animals. What is it for me?
