“Taiji and qigong practices were instrumental in my recuperation from a colon cancer operation,” stated Dr. Choong. “During the practice, when the Qi (Chi) is properly manipulated, the body and mind will complement each other, and become harmonized and vitalized, according the Dr. Choong. Dr. Choong has been in recent years engaged in expressing the postures and moments of taiji, qigong and shaolin gongfu on his canvas to convey the sense of rhythmic vitality in the human body. The movements of human form is captured and frozen as a means to reveal the rhythm of qi (chi), the main energy for maintaining the vitality of our body and mind. It is a reflection of his personal experience in taiji and qigong practice which has helped him to stay fit after his colon cancer operation. The portrayal of body movements and postures of manipulating the qi or energy during taji, qigong and shaolin gongfu practices together with the incorporation of the gongfu manual texts (either in static form or running calligraphy) is to express a kind of visual dynamics and the associated meanings.
