After making a penetrating study of traditional Chinese culture and the history of Western painting, imitating artists of the abstract expressionist school and experimenting with and producing ready-mades, I have taken up painting again. In the last 15 years I have been exploring a question I call “cultural contrast”, a broad field that I aim to explore further. In notes on my works, I write: “In my work I combine the constant cultural value of the symbols in Chinese painting and the unfolding eclecticism of painting taking place in the West.” I combine Chinese traditional landscape painting with the elements of vary art styles in the West. I like to regard my works as equivalent to the real world and not merely a documentation of it. My paintings frequently synthesis imagines of many kinds of objects, where those in the background often change places with those in the foreground.
