    Commentary

  • My work has been about personal journey to see possibility and unity in destructive abstraction by using unnatural colors, broken forms, and canvases of many shapes. The central idea is to confront my destructive thoughts from being uncertain in many situations. It relates to my travelling, immigration and becoming citizen in another country. Painting is the vehicle for me to drive to a destination where I can find the root of my thoughts. It provides me not only the visual images that I can convey my thoughts, but also the thoughts that expressed on the unlimited surfaces and materials. My paintings are about having possibility, being doubtful and finding unity in interruption. Possibility presents new ideas and different point of views. I can see possibility a positive element in life but having possibility also means having doubt. The uncertainties in moving to a possible new place, speaking a new language, having a new relationship create doubt. When doubt happens, destructive thought comes along. I confront the destructive thought by painting abstract human figure; provoke a doubtful view of a usual subject. They are figures in stripes of colors and broken forms. Besides figures, I also painted nature in an abstract manner. I painted unnatural colors to convey the spirit, possibility, in nature. They are ruins in piles of rocks and shaded forests with heavy foliage. I composed these paintings with blocks of colors, stripes of whites and geometric shapes. The introduction of the whites is my attempt to break the visual into a more doubtful view.
