“Tell All the Truth But Tell It Slant”. 2017, Oil Pastel and Oil on Canvas, 24x36 in

I used to live very close to upper Central Park where I walked and sketched almost everyday. The space of that area evoked my childhood memories of living in a traditional southern Chinese house, which is also in some way relevant to my impression of modern dance choreography.

Salto Mortale 2018, Mixed Media on Yupo, 60” x 86”

“Salto Mortale” means a dangerous and daring jump with possibly lethal outcome. It reflects my feeling while painting the chaos -- like walking the tightrope between visual dynamics and pandemonium. It also records my summer experience in a residency in Norway where I jumped into the deep cold sea to learn how to swim.

“Only very rarely do the Buddha Tathāgatas teach such a True Dharma as this, as rarely as the uḍumbara flower blooms.“—The Lotus Sūtra
