My current artistic journey revolves around the profound exploration of energy, a concept deeply rooted in the ancient Chinese metaphysical traditions. These age-old beliefs shed light on the intricate interconnectedness of our universe, offering fascinating insights into our existence.
Incorporating the wisdom of Chinese metaphysics, my work delves into the holistic study of energy. I am committed to using art as a conduit to investigate the cosmic connection that binds our universe, planets, stars, and the human race – an integral part of this grand tapestry.
Within this relentless pursuit, I've embarked on a multidisciplinary adventure, employing painting, sculpture, and digital art to bring the portrait of Energy to life. Beginning with sculpture, I sought to capture the essence of energy in tangible form, drawing inspiration from ancient Chinese principles. Ultimately, I uncovered a framework to attribute these facets, enabling me to continue my exploration of how energy intersects with and enlivens our world. It weaves itself into the fabric of existence, communicating, creating, and connecting the universe with all its constituents. Each place, unique and enthralling, becomes a portrait of the space it inhabits.
My ultimate objective is to grasp how we, as humans, can attain a profound awareness of this omnipresent energy and share this understanding to foster social consciousness. By doing so, we shed light on how this phenomenon can directly or indirectly shape our lives. This quest is inspired by the timeless wisdom of Chinese metaphysics, offering real and profound insights into the energies that shape our world.
