Peace, stability, and calmness have always been the visual goal I pursue through my ink paintings. The environment that people live in, from "material, energy, and information" to the repeated movement and changes, all over the subtle corners of the world. Lao Tzu said: "Humans follow the earth, the earth follows the heaven, the heavens follow the Tao, and the Tao follows the natural." It means that "people live and work based on the earth, and multiply and thrive; the earth is based on the sky and alternates between cold and heat to nurture all things; the sky moves and changes according to the big "dao", arranged in sequence; the big "dao" is based on the nature of nature; let nature be the way it is." Human existence is dependent on the universe; human beings are a part of nature, as human beings are nature. I reflect on these ideas by recreating them through ink on paper. These detailed descriptions and patchworks, the reorganization of natural elements such as trees, mountains, rocks, and flowing water, and the reproduction of the visual context of the landscape, all cope with and balance the state of the self in contemporary urban society.
Living in a world surrounded by cement walls, unnatural substances, where even the ground appears injured, conforming to nature and protecting its original appearance has changed from the job of nature to a tricky task for people, who must rediscover how to connect with nature, protect and restore its self-sufficient life energies, and convey the message of peace and restoration of the environment. The operation and images of the original appearance of the world before the human civilization changed the mountains, rivers and earth, is what I have explored through the context of my works. Animals living in nature have the ability to send and receive information on changes in celestial phenomena and the ability to protect life before disasters. On the other hand, humans who are closely related to the disasters should be as sensitive as these earth creatures, but they have long lost their integration with nature. How do we clean up our perception that have deteriorated over the years is also a subject I try to reflect on through my works.
In our life full of technology and material, mobile phone communication quickly connects us through "QR codes", which are organized like a barcode. From the slight changes in their arrangement, it leads to different websites and completely different information. These transmissions via visual context combination codes lead in different directions due to their different arrangements, similar to the frequency of a radio station. People cannot directly and specifically manipulate and control the channels of life essence from their body, but the information and energies are real. Existence, from which I think about as represented by visual information, is what I try to convey in my ink painting. They are about the peaceful, flowing, breathing, and hearing and seeing of my meditation.
Using the ink painting to express the delicate characteristics of the pen and ink lines requires the operation of attentive concentration. During the painting process, it is like a rest, playing natural and quiet music, visualizing every stroke that contains the wisdom and balance of the heaven and the earth. Sound, the essence of life is fluid, and it rises and disappears in an instant. The heavens and the earth are exuding bright vitality due to natural changes. The silent and quiet power of the valley, the accumulation and tolerance of the soil, the humility of the grass, the unrestrained and free wind, the softness and washing of water, the hope of light, the restoration of night. . . . Each piece of work accumulates a stroke of calmness. The visual information I wish to present can convey the peace and revival and balance of life energy.
