The Remains, an exhibition by award-winning illustrator Qiuxin Mao, features a body of work that examines the juxtaposition of people, time, and other entities. Through examining the world from a different perspective, she hopes to recall her dreams through her art. For Qiuxin, these works are an expression of amazement toward the never-ceasing splendor of the cosmic world through the eyes of a curious wanderer who hopes to explore and grasp its fleeting beauty. All of her works presented here are gifts that she has received from books, memories, music, and the stars above. Through her illustrations, she depicts the everyday stories of a fantastical world in which the characters are envoys that welcome all who seek this world. It is both enchanting and unpredictable while simultaneously insignificant in the grand scheme of the universe.
