"Inner Journey" 向內的旅程

This year I started my “Inner Journey" series of artwork.
I realized that the things we can not see, does not mean they don’t exist.
Like energy, feelings and emotions.

I have also made great changes within myself and my relationship to art.
I began to accept the voices that have been deep inside me.

When I was painting these works, there was a great difference between the works that I had specifically visualized in the past. In doing this work, I don't want to imagine any story that I want to tell. I only focus on the necessary brush strokes, rhythms, and lines of the moment; I only use the colors that speak to me in the moment.
It may sound strange when I focus all of my attention in the present. Every moment, which gives birth to seemingly random lines, unfolds to become the story of a magical journey through life.
It is as if the canvas and I had become one.

I created a red stamp signature that captures the moment for each painting, because every minute and every second in life, we are changing. Today I am a different person then I was yesterday. So I painted my red stamps each day unique to where I am at that moment.

I am from Taiwan and my roots are from the East, but now I have transplanted this garden of myself into New York. Nowadays, I synthesize Eastern and Western cultures. I use the philosophical thinking of the East and combine it with the abstraction of the West.

Each of us has two worlds within us. A visible outward journey and invisible inward journey. Traveling between the two worlds is “A Door to the Infinite Dream

今年開啟了我的「向內心靈旅程」。
才發現有些東西也許肉眼看不見,不代表他不存在。那些能量、律動、和情緒。
而對於何謂藝術,和如何創作這件事情我也有了極大的轉變。
我開始接納那些一直在我內心深處的聲音。
當我在畫這些作品時,跟以往我「向外旅程」具體形象化的作品有著極大的區別。在做這件作品的我,不去設想任何想要訴說的故事,只專注在當下必要的筆觸、律動、線條的脈絡;只用我當下必要用的顏色。
也許聽起來很奇妙,當我完完全全的注重在當下的感受時,那每一個瞬間,看似隨意的線條,其實是在我畫布上必要的足跡。
我捕捉那畫布和我合而為一的瞬間。
並創造了「瞬間的紅印章」簽名。
因為在人生中的每一分每一秒,我們都在改變。昨日的我將不同於今日和明日的我。
所以我隨著心中那瞬間的頻率簽下「當下」那個我的名。而其紅印也融入畫中成為一體。

來自台灣的我,有著來自東方的根。如今漂泊在西方世界的紐約,更激發我創造融合了東西文化的藝術作品。含有著東方的哲學思想、西方的抽象以及重新思考自我追尋的定義。並延續出當代藝術的新生命。

我們每個人都有兩個世界。一個可見的向外旅程。一個不可見卻存在的向內旅程。悠遊在兩個世界之間,是無限夢想大門的通道,也是人間天堂。
