Landscape: about space and time

North View Gallery, PCC Sylvania, Portland, Oregon, 2019

Containing a possibility of visual movement, my paintings construct a complex pictorial space with diffused viewpoints and shifted perspectives.  Under the mixed perspective orders, the pictorial space is built on the conversations between controlled and accidental mark-makings in the painting process.  The pictorial space, which I call landscape, is not an illusionistic space, rather a reconstructed one for exploring the nuances of visual perception.  Engaged with nonlinear arrangement of the space and time, I play on repetition, layers and perspectives through which the relationship among images shimmers their visual abstraction.  In this abstraction, I explore how the visual cognitive experience can enhance the capacity of our perception on something we don’t understand.
