Towards Evening: Six Chapters is an ongoing work that has so far taken Chen Zhe four years to create. Starting from thoughts and sensations related to dusk, she intertwines literature and images and develops them into a compelling work which draws people in to its web-like aura. Chen Zhe's sensitivity to dusk is the signature mood followed in the process of creating Toward Evening, by which we also gain insight into the question of the artist’s inner self.
