"My art expresses a perplexing vision, namely that of the difficult and fated condition of mankind. I strive to express the life and the powers of painting thus give the viewers an opportunity to ponder a variety of figurative symbols. I strive to create a world of imagination, and to compress life and meditation in my language of art. Each work of art attempts to challenge the mind and the soul of the beholder to reflect upon philosophical ideas about life itself, time and space.I try to fuse both MIND and NATURE!!! Some contrasting things such as brilliancy and utter darkness, motions and heart-stopping stillness are presented in my paintings, all of these opposites co-exist. Because of the co-existence of opposites, both artist and the audiences feel a kind of endless exploration of heart. I tried to explore the contradiction between limitation and endlessness of Life~Time~Space."
