Chris Lan Hui Chou

Painting is an attitude about life.

Painting gives me faith, because I know what I have been through.

Painting teaches me to be humble, because there are so many

Things I do not know.

     

Much of my painting is about building layer after layer of paint; I do this both for the texture it creates and for the stories it allows me to tell. They can be read as a history of the canvas, different  time in one stage and as the mass of color they become.

I see things very directly. I only select the form or color, which really speak to me. I am using personal symbols to tell the story of thing which I care. They come from nature and the relationship between people/things and God/me.

I love color.

 

I believe painting has the power to heal.

I believe painting is my mission.

My goal is simple, but is not easy.

I want to make a great art.

I want use it to share, to comfort, and to celebrate.

 

     Through my painting–

     May you smell different season of life.

     Have a date with surprise! Or….  Just simply a smile.
