Art Reflections

    My Scenery series can be seen as a spiritual landscape composed of imagery. However, the way it is expressed, the language I use, is another experimental attempt after so many years of artistic practice. In recent years I am more interested in traditional Chinese painting concepts, reflections on my approach and the contemporary transformation and explorations of the possibility of transforming one¡¯s personal artistic language. What I mean by personal experience is the accumulated language of expression and approach to etching after many years of practice, as well as the painterly experience in relation to the material of oil painting. My extensive experience in etching is crucial to the formation of my individual artistic language. For instance, printing technology, graphicness and simple formations and the attempts to magnify and distil these elements.

    To sum up, I always try to constantly engage and distil the most familiar means of expression in search of the artistic expressivity that fits me best. I also try to realise the contemporary transformation of concepts in the process of rediscovering and understanding the spirit and concepts of traditional Chinese painting, in order to invent an individualistic, unique language of art.
