Artist Statement

My work is rooted in the philosophy of Zen Buddhism. Zen aims at clearing one’s mind completely, which is a philosophy of subtraction. Modern society on the other hand is a world of addition. It overflows with all sorts of objects and stimuli.

I paint the chaos of the world of addition, and the minimalism of the world of subtraction. Sometimes one by one and sometimes both at the same time. Therefore my work can be divided into two categories. One is inclusive and detailed similar to “Mandala,” and the other is essential, similar to Zen Garden.

They harmonize with each other like breathing - inhaling and exhaling - to create a world of its own that triggers to awaken a state of meditation.
