Born and raised in Shanghai, Shen Wei is an artist based in New York City. His series, “I Miss You Already” is a self-portrait project that reveals the process of self reflection and self discovery.
“It is a provocative way to explore my sense of security though understanding the tension between freedom and boundaries. Each image from this series is at once a moment of introspection, and rebellion. Memory, fantasy, anxiety, seduction and emptiness often lead to these narratives. Making these self-portraits is an experience of emotional release, a way to express my desire for openness and possibility, as well as a step towards learning acceptance. While this project is my awakening response to liberation and hope, it also represents a universal search for our place in nature and society.”
