Art Reflections
¡¡¡¡The reason I like Guangzhou is its tolerance: It is densely populated. Traffic jams abound. The city is home to many things, and many changes. The flowers blossoming in its humid and hot climate form a stark contrast with the soaring souls immersed in the din. Very much like my paintings. They are also what my paintings can carry. Even if such order is not to be dissected, it is to be analysed so its disguise can be uncovered. My paintings are closely linked to my life experience and social environment. In the abyss of art characterised by extremely individualised solitude and fear, I face up to the challenges of cruel reality and culture with faith, yet in the life of routines and changes I also start to doubt the existence of such a dreamy state. Some say that what exists is a history subject to constant revision. But isn¡¯t every individual that exists also subject to revision and has to go on like this until being transformed into an unrecognisable history?
