Spring, 2017

inkjet print, 30 x 220 inch (30 x 20 inch / each panel)

The English word ‘landscape’ is expressed in Chinese as 风景. Here, the character 风 means wind, and the character 景 means both ‘scene’ and ‘light.’ Thus 风景 in Chinese originally referred to the phenomenon of light reflecting and sparking as a breeze passes through the greenery. To reflect the Chinese understanding of the word landscape, the aesthetics of Chinese literati ink paintings are usually transparent, weightless, dematerialized, silent and rhythmic. Spring adopts this atheistic to represent not only the sense of spring but also the gentle feelings that we have about spring.
