Abstract

The artist has created a method of painting using gunpowder to draw contours of figures on colored, textured canvas. Through controlled igniting of the gunpowder, varied textures and color effects are achieved. The paintings’ simple, primitive style, which reflects the rich local color of the people of Fujian Province, is the outcome of the artist’s studies of China’s cultural tradition. He places special emphasis on his thoughts about the history of human struggle throughout life and, through his paintings, pursues such themes as humanity versus nature, creation versus destruction, and war versus peace.
