- Personal Statement
The pursuit of a simple life and getting “back to basics” is nothing new, but this perception and attitude are becoming more important in the hustle and bustle of modern life. More and more people are taking a step back away from modern technology and the digital world looking to get reconnected with mother nature. Through my paintings, I reconnect myself with pure nature. What makes nature so pure and yet elegant? Perhaps it's because nature has no agenda, I reckon. Nature is pure and original. With this perspective, I grasp what I see in my mind. I don't need to go beyond myself to depict nature as it is. Nature’s innocence comes to my mind with various images and colours. Often they are flowers, trees, grass, animals or just primitive symbols. Trying not to be ruled by the superficial reality of objects, I just catch them through drawings and paintings as if I were an innocent child who simply has no agenda. With this approach, I tend to be able to express my inspirations in more various and random ways. Simplicity and variety balance each other, just like nature does. I hope my paintings can help people to appreciate living in harmony with nature and to recall a time of innocence and purity.
