小城市集 Small Town Marketplace
水彩 Watercolor｜55 x75cm｜1993
Collected by Kaohsiung Museum of Fine Arts
Themed with a small town in the mountains of Nepal, houses and the marketplace of old and new were juxtaposed with a tall old tree. Large piece of red was placed at the center of the picture, accompanied by the white wall on the left. The wall was painted via wash technique and a plethora of water. Dead branches, electric wires, and mercury vapor lamps were portrayed in light strokes of brushes, so as to break the regular rhythm of vertical and horizontal lines of the buildings. Figures in warm brown colors are added to present a picture of a bustling market.
小鎮晨安 Small Town in the Morning
水彩 Watercolor｜56 x74cm｜2019
In a morning of early winter when the sky was clear, the traffic of the small had been busy. Cars were fighting for their rights of way. In cold temperature with gray tones, the tram in bright tangerine at the center became the highlight. Mercury vapor lamps and electric poles, tall or short, shot up from the road.
雨後臺北 Taipei After a Rain
水彩 Watercolor｜74 x56cm｜2019
On the Dunnan boulevard in Taipei with tall buildings and tall trees on either side, the misty air was full of moisture after the rain. The buildings and the road had been washed and diluted by rainwater. The yellow cabs of Taipei stood out as the protagonist in the picture. The red tail lights of the cars added some poetic sense to the streets of Taipei.
