Study of Contrasts 4# 對比研究4

2023 | Graphite Watercolor on Yupo Paper 石墨水彩、YUPO紙 |93 x 65 cm

Study of Contrasts is a series of work that focuses on the abstraction of light where contrasting elements push and pull the fundamentals of creative exploration. This work resonates within the structure of a floating world, its spirit, history, and future. Depicting an element of the land and the sea by utilizing abstractions in watercolour to mediate between reality, personal interpretation, and emotion.

Study of Contrasts 5# 對比研究5

2023 | Graphite Watercolor on Yupo Paper 石墨水彩、YUPO紙|93 x 65 cm

This painting navigates through an artistic depiction of the conscious and subconscious worlds. It hints towards an active withdrawal from society, a coping mechanism that meditates a practice that’s emotional and intuitive.

Study of Contrasts 6# 對比研究6

2023 | Graphite Watercolor on Yupo Paper 石墨水彩、YUPO紙|93 x 65 cm

The concept of “Floating Worlds” is a theme that is extensively used in creative practice. Each adaption has its own inner meaning and dialogue. This series of work seeks to challenge the conformity and traditions of watercolor painting, allowing the pigment to flourish, granulate and flow. A creative process that’s automatic and sensory.

Study of Contrasts 7# 對比研究7

2023 | Graphite Watercolor on Yupo Paper 石墨水彩、YUPO紙|93 x 65 cm

The painting a Study of Contrasts uses restraint and confusion to evolve complex and detailed imagery that depicts a journey between chaos and bliss. A creative process that is endlessly obsessed over. The detail in this work is deliberately layered and left to overwhelm the viewing audience. This work poses an invitation to viewing experience and personal interpretation.
