Guggenheim Fellow 2007.
Painting is an attitude about life.
Painting gives me faith, because I know what I have been through.
Painting teaches me to be humble, because there are so many
Things I do not know.
I see things very directly. I only select the form or color, which really speak to me. I am using personal symbols to tell the story of thing which I care. They come from nature and the relationship between people/things and God/me.
I love color.
I paint the color of red.
I want to push red as far as it can go.
Red is hot, red is blood, red is energy.
I love form.
I draw the form of circle.
It could be an egg: the life itself.
It could be a watermelon: the fruit that I enjoy.
It could be a window: to lead you to another landscape.
It could be an eye: but what an eye.
I believe painting has the power to heal.
I believe painting is my mission.
My goal is simple, but is not easy.
I want to make a great art.
I want use it to share, to comfort, and to celebrate.
Through my painting--
May you smell different season of life.
Have a date with surprise! Or…. Just simply a smile.
