Pei Wu's starting point is usually her own personal story. Through collecting more stories and going as deep as possible to reach the source, she tries to bring her story to a social level, to tell it in a way that could resonate with the public. The emotion she expresses shapes the material, mainly stone, into its specific form. The quietness in her work is from a frozen moment of an action, a movement. Her work appears soft and gentle in the beginning, until the tension and weight settles in.
The tension and the contradiction are crucial to her graduation project, "Parent, Past Life, Teddy Bear". The soft touch of the material with its oppressive form; the stone is hard but also warm. The “adorable” appearance hides a touch of insecurity. The combination of all senses reflects the state of mind beneath her story.
