Light from Colour - Colour from Light

My focus is on color and light.

Light facinates me. I find many kinds of light attractive, such as city light, sunshine, and light of fire; they draw me into an illusory world. I create optical illusion that impact eyes and let viewers into it. Sometimes my emotion is expressed through light images and luminosity with ambiguous images, however, some of my paintings just stand by themselves and do not need a narrative for support. I hope my painting invites the eye so that the viewer might enter into its aura

In my paintings, I impose limits. I am trying to say the most with the least. I am very involved minimalist artistic practice. The working process is to reduce and remove elements until only my feelings remain. To me, art is a mirror of my personal feelings, reason, and desire, and color is the primary way through which I show them. Colors are intuitively painted and repainted until the desired amount of light and luminosity is reached.

Simplicity and serenity is my purpose.
