Japanese painting

Space pattern series

Based on the traditional techniques and materials of Japanese painting, he tried to innovate painting techniques and tried new materials to create Japanese paintings. In this group of works, I would like to express the power of nature and create the theme of "space pattern". This is because there are many natural and visible concrete symbols in nature. For example, Nautilus spirals, sea vortices, lightning bolt shapes, atomic compositions, and other natural patterns. Such a figure formed in the natural world is called a "space pattern". Using magnets, place iron powder in an invisible magnetic field pattern, adjust humidity to oxidize iron, change color to show mottled texture and traces of rust, giving the concept of time.

Cactus Series

In the Cactus series, the horizon and the polyhedron are well represented. The horizon separates the sky from the earth and becomes the horizon, while the polyhedra in the picture become space. People are represented by plants, which exist in a universe of my own creation. A flower is a person, but a person is not a flower. The relationship between people is like that of a plant, rich in variety and different from each other. The cactus has a sting, yet it is also very fragile. I believe that this is very much the case with the youth of our time. You seem to be blessed by the times, but in fact you are very confused about the future, and I am no exception. This is a question I have been thinking about all my life and I am trying to express it in my work.

This painting depicts a mysterious and dangerous scene with a black background that divides the composition into the sky and the ground, representing the horizon and an endless space. A monster resembling a long-haired gorilla on the right side represents unknown power and threat, with its face hidden in shadows, adding to the enigmatic atmosphere. The white cacti symbolize the beauty of danger, possibly hiding traps or obstacles. The inspiration for this artwork comes from people's curiosity and exploration of the unknown and mysterious, as well as their desire to discover the unknown parts of themselves.

This artwork is titled "Attempting to Embrace" and depicts two cacti intertwined together. The theme of this painting can be interpreted as a desire for love and understanding. The two cacti in the painting are tightly intertwined, resembling two individuals embracing each other, attempting to explore the depth and strength of an intimate relationship. The green cactus symbolizes the power of life and nature, while the yellow cactus represents sunshine and happiness. The contrast between the colors and shapes of the two cacti adds to the visual impact and beauty of the artwork.

This artwork seems to express the relationship and interaction between humans and nature, as well as the possibility of creating peace and happiness through mutual understanding and support. The close connection between the two cacti not only symbolizes a symbolic embrace, but also represents the potential risk of hurting each other. This element can be understood as the various challenges and obstacles in interpersonal relationships, including misunderstandings, conflicts, hurts, and different expectations of each other.

This artwork can be interpreted as an exploration of interpersonal relationships and the effort and risk required to establish a true connection.

The artwork titled "Moving Eastward" depicts a row of black birds in different poses moving towards the right side of the yellow cactus cluster. The background of the artwork is mostly white, with a few hints of pale blue to create a sense of distance and sky.

The birds are the central focus of the artwork, with their varied postures and sizes adding to the visual interest of the piece. The black color of the birds stands out against the bright yellow of the cactus and the white of the background, creating a striking contrast.

The title of the artwork, "Moving Eastward," implies a journey or a progression towards a specific direction. The birds in the painting can be interpreted as a metaphor for individuals or groups moving forward towards their goals or dreams. The cactus, with its prickly exterior, can symbolize the obstacles or challenges that need to be overcome along the way.

Overall, the artwork seems to encourage the viewer to persist and persevere in their endeavors, even in the face of difficulties. The birds' determined postures and forward movement can inspire a sense of hope and optimism, encouraging the viewer to keep moving forward towards their own goals.

Girl Growing Up in the Courtyard  2019 2100x160mm

The artwork "Girl Growing Up in the Courtyard" depicts the upbringing of children in the collective residential compounds of China's past. Parents often worked for the same state-owned enterprise or government agency, and they would compare their children to others in the community, forcing them to perform in front of others to earn face. This repressive environment is conveyed through the image of three black-and-white girls in a cactus grove, with a green background and a gray-white foreground filled with eyes engraved by a knife. The girls seem to be in a world of their own, separated from the watchful eyes of society. The artwork highlights the pressure and constraints placed on children growing up in such a society and the loss of innocence and creativity that result. It reflects the sadness of a bygone era and serves as a commentary on the societal issues that continue to plague us today.

This artwork reflects the sadness of a bygone era. In China in the last century, collective residential compounds were a common form of housing, and children growing up in such an environment were often subjected to various restrictions and repression. In this environment, people may feel frustrated and hopeless, lacking in freedom and creativity. The black-and-white tones and cactus image in the artwork also suggest this coldness and adversity. However, the girls in the artwork still grow in the cactus grove, and they are strong and confident. Their future is full of possibilities and hope, which is also a reflection and call for society.
