我開始有了一個模糊(視覺上)而清楚(意念上)的方向感,是關於返景入深林/ Morandi /古詩/墨色/光影/內外空間/影像特性等等綜合的事物。隨著工作的進展,那意念會慢慢帶領著視覺也逐漸聚焦起來,最後又由視覺照亮了意念的輪廓。


Twelve hundred years ago, Wang Wei wrote the poem "鹿柴 (Deer Enclosure). " Last year, when my thoughts were wandering through various possibilities of light and shadow, this poem emerged like a gentle reflection and projected itself onto my mind. I picked up a brush and wrote down the five characters "返景入深林" (Light slips deep in the forest,) and placed them right in front of my work desk. This forest path appeared with footprints, leading me on a journey. This is the power of classics.

I began to have a vague (visually) yet clear (conceptually) sense of direction, involving ideas about "returning light enters the deep forest," Morandi, Chinese poetry, ink, light and shadow, inner and outer spaces, and the characteristics of images, among other things. As the work progressed, these ideas slowly guided my visual focus, and in the end, my vision illuminated the contours of these concepts.

In my study of painting, I also contemplate the issues of image. For me, image, as a medium, has become a language after more than a decade of practice. The movement of images and their expressiveness regarding light and space have always been crucial "brushwork" of my work. To describe it in terms of brushwork almost explains the way this piece is presented. The movement of images, the luminance of images, and the space in images, these three elements, I treat as a kind of "brushwork" and "composition." This is my understanding of painting and image, and this understanding is aimed at presenting a certain landscape.
