From the artist's comments: "Nothing ever dies or disappears: it changes from one state to another. Turning is about these changes. My model looks back on the path she has traveled in a sudden movement, arrested in a moment of time, lit by the last rays of the fading light." Oil on canvas from *jialu.

Description

Turning, 2001, oil on canvas, 48 x 48 inches

This is one of my most popular images. In 2001 I began to study the Chinese classic Book of Changes, curious about how things arise and in time fade away. I am always struck by the transitory nature of all things. Nothing ever dies or disappears: it changes from one state to another. Turning is about these changes. My model looks back on the path she has traveled in a sudden movement, arrested in a moment of time, lit by the last rays of the fading light.
