In my early work, especially in “Mu-chi and Painting”, I tried to shift the singularity of painting process via swapping the time, space and authority. In this context, the composition and painting technique are no longer valuable but to reconstruct a moldable identification as an artist. However, I perform as a straight painter in this solo exhibition and still wondering how should I conclude this? Only to find out it’s a tautophonical puzzle. Painting could not break it’s own representation barrel, which is framing, but as a result this will make me to face my own nature.
I create a new dimension from my last exhibition “Sketches from Hill Road”. Under the context of modern Aesthetic education, paint from life is all about observation and adoption. Through this training, painter should be capable of capturing all the vivid scenery in the given period of time. It creates those significant strokes which shows instantaneity and fragment in most of those live sketch. Therefore, I adapt from it and implemented on my sketch. By doing this, I am departed from the realistic scenery details but reconstruct the contour of mountain ridge using fragment and rush strokes, only to make it become vestige.
The mountain scenery in my painting mediate me and the nature and it symbolizes the distance in between forest and mountain ridge. It resembles an inter-subjectivity of me and the visual scenery.
