heading rockscape series

 
The Rockscape Series was also inspired by the expeditions into Endou Rompin and Bako National Park in the 1980’s. He probed into the eternal and ephemeral of Nature to apprehend the contrasting yet complementing nature of Yin and Yang. He realized that in nature, the solid rocks and mountain cliffs have to live with the gradual erosion process over the years. Even the seemingly long lasting mountains cannot avoid the changes of vegetation due to seasonal variations and changes. While in the jungle, he could viewed from the distance and look at close-up in order to appreciate the changing rhythm and mystery of Nature. In this Series, he employed the staining process and spray gun techniques to achieve the best visual results. He also used hand-made paper to create quality and beautiful tactile and low relief works which has aptly interpreted the weathering and erosion processes in nature.
岩景系列也是从恩道云宾及巴果国家林园探险中得来的灵感,在森林中他可以远距眺瞄,临近观注。窥探自然的恒如与替变,悟出阴阳相对又互补之道:「磬石虽坚固,却须与风化过程共度时光,山丘万年依旧,却免不了草木的季节更替 —— 大自然的规律和秘奥。」这一系列的创作方法,是先在半干的手造纸上渲染,待干后再以手绘及喷染手法营造出最佳视觉效果。从自造纸上可以用喷射营造出优美色彩和粗糙肌纹或气氛,去描绘大自然的风化和腐蚀的过程。
