Ink on transparent film
Living in a modern city, people find it difficult to capture the genuine naturalness that can be experienced in Chinese landscape painting; nevertheless, I want to take this challenge.
Drawing landscape motifs with Chinese ink on the undesirable material of transparent films is a way for me to seek the possibilities of contemporary ink painting. Although I deconstruct and reconstruct the four basic landscape drawing elements – outline, texture stroke, moss dot, and washing – by overlapping a number of pieces of transparent film together, my work is still able to present an antique quality. In addition, the transparency of the material enhances the sense of mystery in my work.
