A subtle Emphasis of the field of depth of the green pond illustrates the presence of space and time, representing themes of nature.
Sprout of Bougainvillea
The newly emerging branches of an ancient bougainvillea tree foreshadow the reemergence of life and color in the spring after the winter. Spring represents the restoration of life within the tree, just like an elixir of eternal youth.
Morning of Camphor Tree Forest
The use of backlighting in the forest, as well as the increasing heaviness of the strokes in the foreground create a field of depth that is further enhanced by the hilly landscape and fog.
The Bank of the River
The painting depicts a white dog awaiting the return of its owner. The autumn yellowing of the dead leaves and the reeds swaying in the wind evoke a feeling of loneliness, with the sunset as the only companion.
The falling snow and running water of the stream symbolize the unstopping flow of time, expressing the impermanence of life. The painting was intentionally done in low saturation in order to bring attention to the plum tree, which is surviving despite its harsh conditions.
Autumn is the season of harvest and nostalgia; a poetic season of wealth and sadness. Although fall causes a sort of seasonal depression, there is profound beauty to the fall scenery.
Glimpses Down the Path
The painting shows a scene of nature which appears almost virtual, as the color and form of the sky shift and change. The dark background of the scene gives the effect of bass notes, while the bright white grass in the center adds an element of mystery.
This painting is based on the Bible excerpt 4:13-17, which states that the future righteous man will meet god. The painting depicts a scene amongst the clouds, where the light penetrates the clouds, representing the holy light which illuminates all. As the worshippers say, light is the Tao, light is truth, and light is power.
The eagle resting on the rock in the moonlight with a background of Taiwanese hitchhiker grass subtly symbolizes ones shift towards a mindset of focus and perseverance.
The painting depicts the storm clouds of the seasonal typhoons of Taiwan. The volume of the clouds emphasizes the scale of the scene, which combines with the wind rushing along the earth’s surface to express the boundlessness and sublimity of nature.
