Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

The recent series of paintings mainly reflects a kind of collision between reality and unreality that can happen in the everyday world, such as listening to music or seeing something familiar that creates a mental image. Such collisions intersect with daily experiences.

In this work, I make a division into different parts; each has its own visual surface and, when put together, can express the collision between reality and unreality. As part of the process, I adopt exaggerated lines and strokes to depict real and figurative spaces with thick paint as dominant part that also functions to communicate a sense of exaggerated reality. Furthermore, I try to build an abstract pattern with flat paint in the pictures to embody a kind of imagined fictional space to break into the figurative and realistic world. The whole picture comprises two halves; a realistic expression and an unreal one.

Before this series, I have been trying to put a ‘sense of flow’ into my paintings since 2017. I hope that through the painting, I can present the philosophical idea that everything is in absolute motion, and stillness is relative; the origin in a philosophical idea from Heraclitus.

Eastern Buddhism believes that all things in the world have a constant state of change and are interdependent, which is the same idea. This feeling is quite strong in our era. We have to face and be connected with such a dramatically changing world. This the is reason I adopt abundant flowing strokes and lines in the picture in order to visually reveal the concept.

Currently, my exploration is geared toward a new stage that focuses on the cognition of fiction and reality in this fast-changing world. In these paintings, I weave my imaginings - fictional ones - with what I have experienced in my life, and demonstrate them through combining different layers and contrasting surfaces. I employ a semi-abstract way of creating an atmosphere that is characterized by realistic and fictional elements. These works have a dream-like quality and are intended to trigger the imagination and ideas of the viewer.
