Divine Aroma 天香
2023 | Watercolor 水彩 ｜94 × 79 cm
Painting flowers for years, I was said to be madly in love with flowers and praised for my capturing of flowers’ souls. It was influenced by my father’s pursuit for the beautiful things in life. This work employs peony, the King of the Flowers, as the subject. Divine Aroma represents the elegance and tenderness of peony. The floral texture and the romantic vibe are highlighted using the flowing technique, in which a tint of light flows from the dark part.
Oceanic Charm 海韻
2023 | Watercolor 水彩 ｜37×56 cm ＊ 2pieces
The flowing technique is a painting technique passed down by my father. It is a special effect born from the mutual flowing and permeation of colors, which presents surprises every so often. It is perfect for representing the view by seashore. Although we cannot tell the result as we paint, the artistic conception and style in the image is what we seek.
A Peaceful Afternoon 靜靜的午後
2023 | Watercolor 水彩 ｜76 x 90 cm
Still life was the onset for my watercolor practice. I was trained in terms of shape, light contrast, lighting, color, texture, composition, and spatial relationship, all with still life. The white clay pot is integrated with the red, purple, and yellow fruits, as well as the cloth and the yellow background. Amidst the tender light of afternoon, they form a picture of warmth, rendering a luxuriant visual satisfaction.
Cornucopian Bliss 豐碩的喜悅
2023 | Watercolor 水彩 ｜88 × 70 cm
Corn has always been my favorite subject-matter for presentation. Warmth and bliss flow from the golden hue. With a vertical composition and the Hakka floral cloth as the base, together with a black porcelain plate, there comes a color contrast of red, white, and black. Aside from the ethnic flavor, the S-shaped rhythm sets it apart from the visual effect in the ordinary composition of still life.
