‘Seeing from other side’ is my solo exhibition at Espoo Culture Centre Gallery , Finland; 10-21 / August / 2010.
The exhibition showed my silkscreen print works from year 2006 to 2010.
It’s important to look at the way things are actually putting together than at theories. Though my Master of Arts Study in Finland, I feel strongly that I have changed my design inspiration with love and understanding that I have gotten during the time I have stayed in Finland. It gave me a great opportunity to look deeply into another culture in relation to art and design from a Chinese a point of view, which also let me rethink of my own culture.
'Chinese painting, the flower of Chinese culture, is distinguished by a spirit and an atmosphere all its own. The goal of Chinese painting is to create in the most concise manner an artistic charm conveying a meaning of the infinite'.
Indeed, in Chinese traditional thought, the universe consists of breaths of various densities and is an always-moving source of life. To recreate these breaths in an image gives it life and establishes a direct link between the universe, the painting and the human.
I suppose I understood Finnish culture by looking at nature and living a simplified life. It is a Finnish way of happiness. Imagine taking a hot sauna after jump into a cold lake to swim. Imagine sitting beside a lake and listening to birds singing and your own breath, in a moment there is nothing disturbing.
