The Endless Pursuit For Balance, 2012

Medium: Woodcut Relief Print on Xuan Paper
Size: 100cm x 120cm

The Endless Pursuit for Balance is about the never ending search to achieve equilibrium in life. In this modern era, people seem to be constantly trying to achieve a balance between working life and personal life. Why do we need to do this? Isn't it our own decision to place one before the other? Why seek to find this balance when it is us who caused the imbalance in the first place.
