This painting is inspired by construction waste that I saw on the side of a highway. I started with an ink wash and then start to paint the line and form of construction waste. it is also a painting about “qi” using abstraction to paint a sense of chaos and destruction. When I was doing the line work I was really focused yet relaxed in the way that I was trying to paint it as fluid as possible. I am a big admirer of French Chinese painter zao wouki, So in this painting I tried to explore the idea of the grandness of Chinese ink painting in a more western style.
