《山》 “The Mountain”
My art focuses on exploring my experience and the nature of religion and culture.
What would happen when Thangka culture meets contemporary minds? I am interested in how to maintain the unique nature of Thangka while adding new elements to it, such that its uniqueness is not lost when put under a modern context. I try to sense and feel the philosophy behind Thangka - with all symbols set aside, the vary nature of Thangka became my language to represent. Such a language is used to reconstruct the poetic world grasped by my heart.

We cannot be completely separated from the material world, nor can we see an object without any subjectivity. In the process of sensing the nature of the object, I download my subjectiveness; and through the movements of my body, I display the world of mindful sensation.
Painting is no longer the imitation of reality, but an idiosyncratic world itself. Pigment and brushwork are both vehicles, without touching the nature, the materialistic truth or rationality of the world.
