In this collection of art work I encounter intuitive and ubiquitous abstract characters acting out, signified in mediation between the human and sometimes otherworldly dimensions. Love, vulnerability, and spiritual awareness encounters a man who is aware of his place, where there are no barriers or facades among emerging fluttering flowers. In some of the art work, we observe Shanghai seemingly faraway, a product of our humanity’s desires. An individual stands in an open blue space, dark and somewhat ominous but there is hope in a bright oasis, whilst we face the world objectively and rationally. The paintings have harsh strokes and rough under-layers that seem witness to our city’s daily cacophony and I feel expresses its own spirit and my imperfections.
