This series of works is about the practice of my personal painting language, through which I hope that people will be given a new type of visual experience，that is，dynamic feelings out of the flowing in my painting works. I expect people will be more easily aroused to think. Such a flowing expression through painting brushes comes from an idea that I am cherishing and is to be elaborated in the followings.
Everything is in absolute motion and stillness is relative. Eastern Buddhism believes that all things in the world have a constant state of change and are interdependent, for this western philosophers have the same ideas. To express this phenomenon, painting is one of the ways that is able to do the job. However, many of the present paintings have been drawn to express their ideas through static means. This, I am afraid, could not fully reflect the ever-changing and dynamic nature of this world. Therefore I intend to adopt more visually flowing lines and striking colors which can better tell motions and changes of the world, so that viewers are easily touched by and connected with this changing world. In my painting projects, there are, as a viewer can clearly see, no any straight lines, because my idea is that the movement is tortuous, everything is ever-changing and interdependent, and so is our inner thought. To better express the tortuous nature of the world, I have tried to use flowing brushes and striking colors in my paintings which have a stronger impact on viewers since they were exhibited. I expect that the use of such flowing brushes and strong colors can be developed into a new painting language which will teach people to face this dynamic changing world, stimulate their imaginations and enrich their sense of the objective world.
