Artistic Concepts

For many years, I have been consistently searching for an ideal visual language and created the"Shaanbei Landscape" series, “Question” series whose subjects are mainly heads and hands. I am pursuing a sense of stillness and motion, objectivity and subjectivity and I never stopped.

Spontaneous, simple, clean, sophisticated, and touching are the first impressions that most people haveon my works. I am trying to create the harmonious coexistence of man and nature. With the highpressure of modern society, we are gradually losing touch with many instincts and becoming lesscompatible with nature. Hence I aim at emancipating man from such demise to re-embrace with every other natural beings.

In term of techniques, it is crucial to paint spontaneously and flexibly to achieve an effect that appears at once “dense and light, quick and slow, hard and soft, cold and warm”.

When I look at an empty canvas, I begin to feel excited and return to peace again. To me, learning to copewith the rise and fall in life is the highest form of existence. Every painting is a part of my life andachievements……I hope others can find their natural essence via my works as well. It is in itself a way of cultivation.
