Saio Xie


Un-commissioned | Professional

Why did you make this work:
I wanted to tell a story of time, memory and landscape. The story is about the cycle of a rock and the interaction between landscape and human activity. At the beginning, it was both water and fire. Mountains and rocks seem solid and indestructible to humans. However, in infinite time, everything is fluid.

How was the illustration used:
It is a personal work.

How did you make this work:
I got this idea from my melted candle, which was shaped into a mountain look by fire. And the imagery of mythology and substance came to me. The work was made with digital tools.
