I am fascinated by the process of painting, through time it brings changes to the pigment layers, brush marks, shapes and forms of the painting. This shows the fact that painting is neither a faithful representation nor a solution for the reality; instead, the painting is the creation of data (image) that reopens the path for us to re-experience the reality at a different level.

I select specific sites for photo taking to be used as a reference for my painting. Through time, the process of painting constructs the image as the references become fragments that I piece together to create the scene of this island. Through this process the landscape revels something to be seem, unseen, hidden, clarify or mystery, such is the way for me to comprehend this place. 

 


繪畫令我著迷的是過程中時間痕跡的累積、變化與所形成的圖像,它無法再現與解決現實,而是自身成為檔案(圖像)後再重新開啟對現實有感的觀看縫隙。

我去特定地點拍攝照片作為參考後再繪製。透過繪畫性呈現時間過程最後將圖像拋出,我試著將這些取樣併置,拼湊出這座島嶼的片段風景,可見的,不可見的,被掩蓋的,不得其門而入的與再釐清的,同時也是我認識這地方的一條路徑。
