THE SEA IN THE SEA

Ink on Paper|

Click:2846

April, 2013. I was thinking about the plan of my solo exhibition in the Ring Exhibition Hall of the Gallery, China Academy of Art. Looking around, I imagined the sea levels I drew as horizontal lines unfolding one after another in this exhibition hall. Suddenly I had an illusion of the boundless huge waves gushing out towards me from every side, with a thunder of sound.

A year later, when I read the sentences written by Zhuangzi, “The Great of the South China Sea called Shu and, the Great of North Sea called Hu, and the central Great called Chaos”, which reminded me of the huge waves in the exhibition hall. It suddenly occurred to me that I have to transform myself from an observer of the ocean into a local. As a result, I tried to abandon the visual parts, using my body and mind to feel the invisible energy and serenity of the ocean. At the time of primeval chaos, I float in the vast mist, with the initial mind of me.
