For the “Lumière” series, I would like to maintain a pure, solemn, somber and tranquil air, which are the languages of god, all else is poor translation. The inspiration for this painting came from a wall in my studio in Sanzhi. I was going through a major change in life and for a period of three months I did nothing but read in front of this wall, and it was all I saw when I lifted my eyes from the pages I was reading. I was inspired by a sense of holiness from this everyday scene, as if anyone who immerses oneself in this infinite love between the wall and myself would be enlightened. At such a moment, life and death, chaos and order, faith and wanton, liberty and confinement, the uncrossable gap between here and the other shore are all merged into one. My art is the mysterious game between the two shores.
