I am interested in painting landscapes that depict both city and natural views. I aim to combine the sincere and vivid natural status of beings, such as rocks and clouds, with my own discoveries about the relationship between the seen world and the world inside myself. To achieve this, I use a mix of oil paint, pen, and acrylics to create a language that describes the texture, space, and light effects of materials, thereby transferring both rational and romantic feelings of nature to my paintings. My recent project explores the communication of unknown energies between nature and humans through the events of nature or civilization transformation in a magic-realistic world.
