The Book From The Sky, 2018.
The Book from The Sky is inspired by the moon, and it incorporates Chinese elements—the specific ancient Chinese characters called “Yun Zhuan” that people can no longer understand. The work also adopts the traditional Chinese ink and wash painting method. The overall is Zen style, graceful and quiet. This work creates a sense of layer by using the translucency of the paper and controlling the amount of ink used on both the board and the paper that makes people feel distant changing without losing the whole painting’s integrity. The space is enlarged, and the work is breathable. In this work, you can see the elegance of the very thin handmade paper, and you can see the texture created by the hand grinding pigment. In addition, the black and white and the flow characteristics of the ink also play a big role. It combines the adsorption of paper and the sparkle of pigment to form a dynamic painting. The ancient Chinese characters in the space convey a sense of mystery, just as you do not know what it is going to tell you when you look up at the moon. The work is to attract and block people’s desire to make sense. The artist hopes that this work will prompt people to always be awed and curious about nature.
