“Convert Corner” Ji Fu Tang Solo Exihibition
The image contains no intrinsic meaning–just find a point of interest (or something that inspires a feeling) to ponder. And, in the end, a certain “form” develops.

I prefer shape and concreteness to abstract expressiveness, and concreteness stimulates me to think about it more. Rich forms, dynamically intertwining lines, the irregular thickness of a tree branch and the scars on its surface–all of these arouse my urge to create. The people of ancient China were very wise. With a few twisting, undulating lines, they could conjure flowing water onto the page. Even now, their art remains convincing, and their techniques are very advanced.
