Wang Zhiyuan: “A painting is a effective meeting of material, psyche, time and movement, enacted upon surface therein containing consciousness, identity, social, racial, philo-spiritual, physical and psycho-sexual states of being that slowly or rapidly unfold through action, conceptually or perceptually referenced.” Painting creates image, the making process is also an image. In this relatively open process, I focus more on how to make the painting than what to paint, not limited to specific materials, methods, tools, time and so on. I believe that freedom can be found in any specific creative process, and painting itself is the source of inspiration, reference and content.
