Looking back on the migration and movement of previous life on Earth, clouds seen from a plane window become the creative vocabulary in the medium of contemporary ink wash from which arise myriad forms such as typhoons, floating mountains, various landscapes, and black and white abstractions. Starting from artist's Post-Cloud series four years ago, the fathomless and recondite “clouds” of his ink wash have become a sort of personal element for the artist. From clouds outside an airplane’s window, the artist has recently pivoted to tracing the influence of gardens and excursions among the contemporary ink wash field, arriving at various visual inspirations through his own personal experience of local gardens, ponds, and lakes. A lake’s aquatic plants, the ripples on a water’s surface, white clouds reflected on Chengqing Lake in Kaohsiung—the artist successfully combines such abstract vocabularies in a sort of creative modus operandi that allows his paintings to be filled with unrestrictive, far-flung imaginings: vast universes, bubbles in the deep sea, mysterious meteorites, etc. For the artist, these myriad appearances can all be traced back to the foundational characteristics of “clouds” and the imagination that defines their existence.
