Water Water

tot-image

This is an exhibit of my traditional Chinese water colours and calligraphy. This exhibit is a collection of my work over the past ten years. These watercolours and calligraphy are all about water. Water is like bodies and dancing, water can be quiet like fog and it can be energetic and overwhelming like a waterfall or sharp and unpredictable like a storm. These peaceful painting use water to give meaning and space. I like to explore landscapes and nature in its many beauties and colours. I delve into my memories of beautiful places and I make images that are delicate and full of dreams. My traditional calligraphy is part of my culture, it is deeply ancient, meaningful and vast like the oceans. Together the words and colours work together take us to a peaceful world.
