I walked through the Mustard Seed Garden
As a city people, every day I live in a real life. Sometime I imagine to travel in a wonderland, enjoying a mountains and sea, and the bird as a friend, listening to the sound of water, may be put down a tired, looking for a tranquil landscape in the mind.
[The Mustard Seed Garden Manual of Painting] recorded common things which appeared in Chinese ink painting, such as mountain, sea, tree, plants, wind, cloud, birds and flowers, people etc. Whether traditional or modern, is an inevitable element. No border between the different eras, all becomes to ideas, symbols and image.
In the paintings, birds flying in the sky, the sun over huge mountain, golden fish swimming, trees and stone, flower living in the branches, varied and harmony .
Every single thing has closely connected relationship, like you and me. I feel like travelling the magical journey in ancient time. The process of created this series, I fill the feelings of real life in the works; it seems like leisurely, or hard. The status between real life and imagination, become balanced.
When photography, painting mixed with different mediums, they appeared a harmonious color. Raw wood board is imperfect, it causing the most natural style of work. Wood texture and fine Chinese brush to presence a couple hardness with softness combination. When the idea meet different mediums, it is a communication. Every objects are different, but also integration.
