Artist Biography

Creative Concept:

This work consists of intricately handmade porcelain butterflies sewn on Chinese dresses. The idea came from the living of Cheng in China for over 10 years and experiencing life in the vast country. From afar, people can look at China and see a country with people almost looking the same. But if you look closely, China has many complex personalities, many different cultures mixed into one large pot.
