An ink paper temple inside a theatre
An temple space created inside a theatre by paper and ink through the corporation of two artists. The question is what is the real story of having a temple today? And what are we suppose to share with the future generations through visual art? And what is the purpose a theatre could serve in this digital world?
From drawing to performing
When Visual artists become the actors on stage, what kind of performance he, she or they could acts? When the body of artists become a moving brush, what kind of traces or art will be created? The whole life of a visual artist is a piece of painting, what about few seconds inside a theatre? From an indoor studio to a public space, from someone’s personal spiritual exploration to a public dialogue with audiences, no hesitate! only draw or performing can tell.
Writing or painting?
The beauty of writing is without thought! A nonstop mind transformation from head to hand, the beauty of a real dialogue is open the discussion who never i magine before, so what is the beauty of the process of painting today?
The text is main content of writing, it’s purely about concept development. A painter normally deal with the images and colors, what if a painter only paint the concept and text without images and colors? Or a future story “wrote” by images and colors?
Inbetween black and white
Ancient Chinese painter believe “ black can be divided to five colors” when they talk about the color of the ink. So in another word, black is the most colorful color! I guess it’s all because of the water since she is the mum of everything. And surely we can only create images by water, ideally we will create life not only art…
