Artist Statement:
My work are composed of dyes and mixed media, and laden with abstract elements that are rooted in Chinese philosophy. I explores uncertainty and chance, In my process, I let my mediums "take their own course", abandoning all control, the wisdom of allowing things to happen, which is a belief found in Taoist philosophy. My work is full of optimism. Life and color dance on my canvas. My brush strokes are not confined by the rigid discipline of traditions. It is spontaneous continuous movement; abandoned restrictions for serendipity.
