I humbly embark on a lifelong pursuit of beauty through my artwork. Inspired by the Great Masters of the European Renaissance, I strive to create figurative paintings and landscapes that reflect the wonders of the natural world, bridging the gap between tradition and innovation.
My artistic journey traces back to the simple wonders of childhood memories. The stamps I collected and the vivid recollection of a cherished oil painting in my childhood home ignited a spark of inspiration within me. This early fascination set me on a path of lifelong devotion to art.
Throughout my career, I eagerly immersed myself in the art world through international travels. Museums, exhibitions, and galleries became my sanctuaries, where I found solace in the pure joy of experiencing art.
Upon retiring, I embarked on a personal quest to develop my artistic talent and express the beauty I see in our awe-inspiring world. I delved into the realms of creativity, exploring new techniques and honing my skills. Each brushstroke became an opportunity to capture the essence of beauty and share my unique artistic perspective.
My portfolio stands as a testament to my unwavering dedication. Influenced by my Chinese origins and the aesthetics of the Renaissance, my paintings embody a harmonious fusion. Portraits, inspired by Leonardo Da Vinci’s attention to the human figure, captivate viewers, revealing my meticulousness and commitment to capturing the spirit of my subjects.
My art also embraces the characteristics of Chinese painting, celebrating my deep-rooted connection to my cultural heritage. Through primarily portraying portraits and landscapes, I express my affinity for traditional subjects. Employing the delicate brushwork reminiscent of traditional Chinese ink paintings, I skillfully bring depth and form to my lines using oil and watercolor paints.
Art curator Roberta Desolati aptly describes my works as a harmonious blend of styles, cultures, and influences. My paintings resonate with both Eastern and Western traditions, bridging the gap between artistic legacies. Through masterful brushwork, I strive to capture the essence of beauty and breathe life into my creations.
My ultimate goal is to create artworks that not only possess inherent beauty but also resonate with the desires and aspirations of the audience. With unwavering dedication, I strive to capture the true essence of art and unravel the profound significance it holds for the world.
