Black and Red abstracts. Chinese paper, Chinese ink, polymer medium. Traditional Chinese landscapes are hinted at through ink and polymer medium. The repetition of paper squares and lines of Chinese ink imply a conceptual tension between layers of history overlaying a grid of obsessive modern growth and modernization.

White Abstract. Large white Chinese paper, Acrylic medium and Black Chinese ink. Traditional Chinese landscapes are hinted at through the interaction of ink and acrylic, gently guided by the brush and surface tension between elements. The image is a result of blending of eastern and western style to find a new topology of harmony.

City Logic City Logic, Acrylic, Chinese paper, Polymer Medium. City logic is a perspective on Beijing life and modernity. Beneath a grid of culture and scholarship (the traditional Chinese Character paper) are the primary colors of modernity, set in a puzzle-like, logical form. Figures move freely on top of this backdrop, while we watch from some vantage point above.

Yesterday's Logic Yesterday's Logic, Acrylic, Chinese paper, Polymer Medium. Yesterday's Logic is a perspective on Beijing life and modernity, beneath a grid of culture and scholarship (the traditional Chinese Character paper) are the primary colors of modernity, set in a puzzlelike logical form. Figures play cards and seem to effortlessly relax while Modern Beijing life speeds by. We, again, watch from some vantage point above.

Chimpanzee Attack triptych Pulled from headline news, Chimp Attack explores environmentalism through the sensational Chimpanzee attacks of recent years.

Are we steward's of nature and the environment or are we a yet to be another branch of the evolutionary tree broken by competition and natural selection?
