Artist statement

Vanitas is a very rich and old symbol in the art which show to the viewer that joy of life is just a short moment, compare with all life of the human. Dutch artists like Edwaert Calyer painted the still life, and people have to identify themselves with the only objects. Creating beautiful composition rich in colors and items, which shows the vanity of passing life. However, this project represents a different way of thinking by indicating the symbols of vanitas, contrast with the human body and interaction between carnality and objectivity. It has no intention to create a composition, only interaction with the objects which are already the symbols. The symbols in Vanitas are various from candies to stuffed animals, and all mean the same unavoidable passing time and vanity of this items. Everything that people owns in this world is nothing compare with eternal life after dead. Someday we will die, and this item will only change the owner. Therefore, what is the point to put so many attention to such unimportant things which we always want to possess?
