The Yu Xiao Never Grow Up Series is a Quaint Depiction of the Past

{SummaryTitle}

As the artist explores her childhood in the Yu Xiao Never Grow Up self-portraits, she discovers that the past always seems like a beautiful time.

Often, looking back on our childhoods, we remember only the good times and we can brush off all the bad experiences as we laugh about them. In her realistic depictions of her younger self, Yu Xiao shows a quaint childhood full of activities such as bike riding, playing with dolls and walking to school. While the past she captures is certainly pretty, it also seems quite lonely and cheerless, as though she yearns for siblings or playmates.

The Yu Xiao Never Grow Up self-portrait series gives us a peak at the artist’s memories of her youth.
