"NiuNiu is a little girl I met when I visited western china. When I approached, she seemed scared. I believe it was her rst time seeing a stranger. She blocked her face with her hands, but left her curious eyes showing.
In China, many villages are changing into cities. The villagers fear this change, but want it too. Their expression is engraved in my memory, prompted me to paint these."
