Artists Statement:

The human history is so grandiose and yet so negligible as compared to the eternity of the universe. It has become way beyond our reach ever since the rise human society and inevitably – war and violence amongst the human race. The tragic reality of the human race filled my heart with sorrow.

Sorrow as it may be while it also carved my life-long journey out of despair when I embrace my life with Chinese Painting. The pursuit to embrace mother-nature has long been the “Tao” of Chinese Painting thousands of years ago, whereas a peaceful mind is every artist of the Chinese Painting aims to achieve.

A cliché in Chinese says riding a hobby saps one’s will to progress. This is certainly the opposite of what an artist’s life is worth for. The passion to live and work for their interest with a firm belief that they are to live out the true value of life, they tend to lead a way of life different from people around them. Very often, artists become the pioneers to open up new dimensions of life in human history.

Art is without boundary of national borders, while artists do bear their own nationalities. Holding Chinese Painting dear to my life-long pursuit for the two years after my graduation from the Department of Fine Arts of the Chinese University, it comes to a moment where I feel deeply honoured to share my recent works with everyone with a mind of peace inChien Mu Library of New Asia College.

展覽簡介​:

相對於恆常天地,人類的歷史實是微不足道。但自從人類社會的出現,紛爭與暴戾便肆虐著這天這地,人與自然的和諧變得那麼奢侈,那麼遙不可期… …

這令我感到悲哀!

我悲哀,於是開始了中國畫的生涯。幾千年來,國畫圍繞著山水花鳥,追求天人合一的境界,體現終極關懷的人文精神。人們說玩物喪志,但寄情山水並不代表藝術家的冷漠;恰恰相反,藝術家依靠的是創作激情而生存,藝術家必須忍受眾人皆醉我獨醒的孤苦,藝術家應當是時代變革的拓荒者!

藝術不分國界,但藝術家有國籍,我以承繼和弘揚中國傳統文化為己任。離開中大藝術系兩年以來,良師訓益友言未敢見忘,閒暇之時聊以丹青自娛。是次假新亞書院錢穆圖書館一隅,與諸位同享平日所思所感,謂之“家常畫體”。
