PANYU XIAO

I am a painter, I am from China and I am an art teacher. I am also a mother of two kids. Most of my oil painting techniques come from self-study, and my kids are most about thinking about what attitude we should take in this complex society life? Especially when the epidemic is raging, we have to rethink the meaning of life. Maybe time is a closed loop. The most distant future is the past that just happened. We can’t control the future or change the past. What we can do is to cherish the present. This state of the present constitutes our real life, just like the stone of Sisyphus, you keep pushing it, time and time again, his meaning is the moment you push the stone, my sage’s stone series works It’s about what it means to live in the moment.
