“I try to be as concise as possible in expressing my inspirations. I believe a work of art must be capable of standing on its own, instead of creating the piece to fit a particular surrounding.I respect the efforts of representational artists, however, their work is limited because it can never replicate the subject completely. I prefer to paint in the abstract to explore an unknown content without boundaries. I don't have to hunt to discover my images. Over the years, I have learned to be patient and open up to my creativity, allowing my pictures to emerge. My creative flow starts when something repeatedly triggers my imagination, in a way similar to that of a song you can't get out of your head. I sit down and outline the basic shapes on canvas or paper. This is when I am the master of my creation. I then refine it; make its design balance, until everything fits. I know I am 'on track' when I step back and feel a sense of satisfaction because the image has taken on a life of its own - the creation has become its master. I sometimes start a painting and it may take years to complete, such as my painting, 'Life’ seven years. I usually paint three or more pictures at a time to keep the creative flow uninterrupted.
