“The interaction between surrounding environment and each existing entity is undeniable. To visualize this actuality, ancient proverbs say “If near ink, you will be black; if near light, you will shine” or “Living inside a gourd things become round; living inside a tube things become elongated”. My paintings also reflect that content.”
