Naive Days 2011 Spring / Summer "Jasmine Bloom 茉莉花开 1 " Plant a Seed of Hope 种一颗希望的种子
I did not name this new series "Jasmine Bloom" until today. I was thinking to name this new series after another flower. Even though the image of the "flower" from all the above pictures don't suggest any clue of jasmine, I would like to use this term: "Jasmine Bloom".
I am not a political interested woman and had not paid much attention to terms such as" freedom of speech" and " democracy". Until a couple of years ago, one of my dearest friend in China lost his life because of his own belief on freedom and democracy. I was shocked. I felt ashamed.
There is something going on in China now and people name the activity "Jasmine Revolution". I know it would not be easy to make things happen in China. People are more keen on things in term of "economics". However, there is a hope, and there do have some lights. I attach this new series of the new collection with my best wishes to "Jasmine Revolution". Let jasmine bloom!
