Perhaps art does not exist, and in fact, it is simply a form of communication. My work examines ancient philosophy, origins of mark-making, visual, and oral communication and views subtleties as an expression of the individual. I look for the clearest methods and tools to develop shapes into an abstract vocabulary. My primary tools are the Chinese brush, paper, ink stick, and ink stone but also  steel, ceramic, and wood.

The marks on the Chinese paper are irreversible and act as a refined record of one’s mental and physical control. I work to know myself through brush strokes and to share my own imperfections and self-discoveries.

 

人们常常认为艺术是可以购买或观赏的东西。事实上,艺术与生活是密不可分。我们每天都在使用艺术,比如我们的着装以及我们的谈吐,但我们通常不认为这是艺术。我们想着自己的穿衣颜色和风格。其实我们自己就是一件艺术品,每天都通过我们的外观、语言和行为在展示给每个人。

这是我艺术创作的基本想法:让艺术变的可接近,让每个人都能理解艺术,让每个人能更好的控制自己的生活,以
及更清楚他们是谁。
