The sky broke like an egg into full sunset and the water caught fire. I am keen in discovering and expressing the beauty of nature. I want to explore elements of nature, such as light, clouds, and other natural phenomenon, and how they link to mankind. With the rapid development of technology, we strive to seek a way to view nature in a different way. I want to raise awareness of environmental protection whilst expressing the beauty of Chinese traditional art. I find inspiration from art movement such as Art Nouveau, Japanese Wabisabi art, and Impressionist artists. I am interested in exploring the relationship between Chinese scenery from different cultural perspectives and how these are expressed through different media, including paintings, installations and product designs. The vision for my exhibition is a body of work that explores my personal interpretation of the beauty of nature through the lens of scientific technology.
