A continual feature of my work has been my concern with space in my paintings, and I am currently interested in playing with material and colour, making a space where people can travel into. I have recently been using a more complex palette. Expanding and challenging the use of my colour palette in my painting has allowed me to explore more curious and interesting visual spaces. It has also helped me open up new possibilities beyond image, as well as to transport the viewer to a different kind of space that feels both ordinary and unfamiliar- I would like to call this visual space, Wonder-space.
The reason for creating a Wonder-space in a flat canvas is the possibility, for me and of course the viewers, to indirectly experience a foreign land. I have realised through travels that staying at a new space away from life domain can provide a rest. I have tried to show people that art can provide a short leave from the thoughts of reality, which can be a spiritual relaxation as described by the concept of Wa Yu in Eastern painting. The structure of the space in my works is a combination of fragments and impressions of my personal memories and imagination. The collected sources from mixing with the fragments and impression from my imagination and my memories are converted into abstract elements for landscape. Then my boundary-dissolving imagination steps in to create a new space. The result, The Wonder-space provides viewers internal peace and aesthetic pleasure from witnessing a gap between boundaries.
Wonder- Space has been my long-term experiment. This reconstruction of spaces from my memory and my creation of imagined space had continued to 2011. After finishing Master course at Slade School of Fine Art, this subject matter has become more specified through my study on two boundaries - one is between figurative elements and abstraction, and the other is between reality and fantasy. What I am focused on, in this cross-over, is to extend the dimension of expressive freedom as much as possible while not leaning towards one side. I would like to more expanding and do more experiments with this limit between two different boundaries.
