在这里 No.10 - 寻找平安 In Here No.10 -Seeking Peace , 2015
Oil on Canvas, 100 x 80 cm
About the artwork
A lone figure seeks shelter under a tiny umbrella, while a wave of intricate and otherworldly chaos threatens to overwhelm him. What happens next and what does the future have in store? There is beauty in the breakdown, the chaotic mass disintegrates into geometric shapes, spirals and familiar motifs. Whether the character truly finds peace or falls even deeper into a web of entanglement is left to the viewer's discretion.
