ink and color on paper 水墨設色紙本
142 x 73 cm
Growth rings are the memories of trees, and are nature’s yearly imprints. Within the small body of a wood, are stowed away time fragments and the universe’s metamorphosis, as if expressing life’s perseverance and magnificence, becoming ripples in circles. The bright resplendent transmutation of butterflies is depicted in meticulous painting (gongbi). Like the life of everything in the world, between wandering and searching in time and space, on earth and in the sky, looking for its position and value. By combining abstract and figurative painting, I search for a new perspective in ink painting, and simultaneously to express my understanding and feelings towards the universe and life.
