 Seasons of Life-Division of Solar Periods


 The ancients in their great wisdom divided the year in 24 periods. Today, facing the serious problems of global warming and the destruction of the environment caused by rapid technological development, our common wish is to return to these essential foundations. Essence is greater than form, and returning to the essence of the solar periods implies spiritual experiences and exploration during life's different seasons and finding a release. Lines in my paintings represent life's scars and the passage of time. Life's seasons are like the pattern of changing weather over the course of the four seasons. Sometimes we go through difficult periods that are like bitter cold, but afterwards, life is full of sumptuous blossoms. These transitions are also demonstrated by clear skies after a storm, or the appearance of a rainbow after the rain.

 

Transition into Spring
The silence is broken and everything recovers as springtime thunder screams and cherry blossoms bloom. We should ignore passing time and enjoy each quiet moment to grasp the true meaning and value of life, and seek eternal beauty. 
Transition into Summer
In the heat of the summer, crops grow vigorously and farmers are busy working in the fields. The human heart is restless like a drifting balloon. Calming our hearts like a clear stream, we feel refreshed like the purity after a drenching rain. Life is stable and the grain is plump. 

Transition into Autumn
This is the season when day and night are equally long. In early autumn leaves fall, and the osmanthus becomes fragrant. Each flower is its own world and presents comfort and beauty. The fall of autumn leaves creates a moment that is eternal.

Transition into Winter
For the season where all is frozen and hibernating, I have deconstructed the cunfa (dry brush technique) lines and decorative points in Chinese landscape paintings, and formalized the emptiness, superficiality, and destruction of contemporary life. The result is staggered, flying lines that are like complex thoughts coming from all directions. I am seeking my place and origin in the traces of these continually overlapping and circling lines. Winter is a quiet season of waiting, and life must comply with heaven's wisdom. The lines represent the traces of life's process, a humble and liberated artistic attitude, and present an artistic style that is reserved and simple. At the end of winter, life's return is awaited. Green willows sprout and pink blossoms emerge, heralding the arrival of spring, and thus the endless cycle of life. 



 人生の季節-節氣霽劃


24節氣是東方古老的偉大智慧,但由於環境變遷與人類文明科技的迅速進步,氣候的暖化、自然環境的破壞,面對這些日益嚴重的問題,回歸到這些根本來源是人心的慾望。

「本質大於形式」,回歸到節氣本質,演繹為心靈在不同生命季節時的經歷與探索,找到生命的出口。畫中的線條代表著生命的傷痛與時間的流逝,生命季節就如同季節更換與氣候的規律運作,有時經歷如冷峻寒冬時的困苦艱難後,生命也因此能綻放豐盛,如「霽」的含意:風雨過後的晴天,出現雨後的彩虹。

 

《春之霽》

萬物復甦,春雷乍響,櫻花盛開,打破了寧靜,不管時間如何流逝,跳脫時間之外,享受當下的安靜,把握生命的真實意義與存在的價值,尋找永恆的美。

《夏之霽》

炎熱夏天,農作生長旺盛,田間工作繁忙,人的心無法安定猶如氣球般飄動,心如清流般安定,可感受到生命的清涼與雨水洗滌後的純淨,生命安定如籽粒飽滿。

《秋之霽》

晝夜等長的季節,初秋的落葉,桂花的馨香,一花一世界,都是一種當下的自在與美麗,秋葉的漂落,剎那即永恆。

《冬之霽》

萬物封凍與冬眠的季節中,透過解構中國山水畫的皴法線條與苔點,梳理在當代的虛無、漂浮、破碎當中,飛舞的線條如人生來自四面八方的複雜思緒,在線條交錯中排廻不停的尋覓,依著線的痕跡尋找自我位置與生命的原點,安靜等候的季節中,生命是順應天的生存智慧,線條代表生命過程的痕跡,是一種謙卑、自由的藝術態度,含蓄、簡單的藝術樣式,等待生命的柳綠與粉紅發芽,冬的結束代表春的到來,一個生生不息的循環。
