Statement

During my painting time, over half of my time was spent on landscape painting.Observation and perception is the inspiration source of my artistic creation, which helps me keep improving myself. I drew a lot of landscapes and ancient cities all of the world.I combine rigorous observation and illusionistic rendering with the possibilities of open-ended interpretations.When I got a artist residency in Giverny, France.The plants blooming and withering allowed me to have a deep thought, plant looks more vulnerable than humans but they live without fear. I would like to express this concept through botany.I have recently painted a series of cactus. This series is a result of my search for ways of bringing traditional painting into contemporary art. I use the cactus to compare life. I thought that these cacti have their own sense of character,while this kind of image is relatively strong and sensible to everyone.Such a plant depicts a spirit that people can resonate to.In the struggle of our society comes to a struggle in nature.
