This series of works is my reflection on human relationships, it is inspired by my previous relationship, the iceberg figure is a representation of my ex it was inspired by my dream, and the raven is my avatar. I'm a pessimistic idealism, from this experience love is painful, because we can never really "be together" with the ones we love, no matter how hard we try we can't really understand each other and become one, and ironically, the harder we try, the further we push away the others. Therefore love is cold. I feel like each individual is a lonesome island that alienated from each others.
