Ode to a nightingale -52

Artwork Tags:

In China, an appreciation for rocks stemmed from ancient religious attitudes toward nature, which included the veneration of mountains. Rocks were believed to have a concentrated amount of natural energy and symbolized the dwelling places of the Daoist immortals. I create rocks and landscapes with monotype technique.

STATEMENT

I want to make a dreamscape from my memory. By juxtaposing fragments of memories from my childhood, Chinese traditional fabric textiles, old Chinese legends, the fragments from Chinese vase… I want to tell stories. Stories about childhood’s fantasies, Childhood wonderland. My drawings are visual poems drawing the viewer into an open-ended story through images that ignite the imagination and a sense of delight by a collage of the images that I was familiar with and manipulating the formal elements of drawing: line, color, tone, and design patterns. Color pencils on layers of mylar allow me to work on the sense of depth from the transparency. The way I compose my drawings called “image mapping”, which is a hierarchical way of show the relationships among images of the whole. I started to create a single image with concept; then one by one add more images; in the mean time I also associate with each image by drawing lines, patterns. Image mapping opens a complex visual diagram to guild people viewing my drawing.
