Statement 

 

"My works reflect my personal recollection of rural life and traveling experience in the ethnic minority areas of China. Some of my paintings capture a brief moment from sensitive observation; others re-create poetized scenes from fantasy to achieve a dreamy world of peace and contentment. My focus is on the lives and sentiments of ordinary country people as a symbol of both the values of culture and a pristine environment- a sharp contrast to present day urban China.

 

With my education and live experience in both the East and the West, I explore cultural hybrids in my artwork. I investigate an oriental mood through combining Western oil language with the influences of Buddhist and Chinese folk art. My work also absorbs many Chinese art concepts and themes such as subjective color, geometric forms, reorganized linear qualities, and decorative patterns."
