LIN Wei-Hsiang

For me, my art practice is the progress and trace of searching for peace, like a journey. I present a personal spiritual world via a simplified and pure presentation in my paintings.

I often appropriate natural scenery as the symbol of myself in order to place my longing, endorsement and admiration of nature. Through arranging the landscape, I share my wholehearted experience about my close relationship and dialogue with the nature world.

I try to extract an eternal value out of the constant transformation of the present. My paintings of scenery that show the conversation between objects and me also the interrelationship between image and spirit intend to capture the eternity within a moment.
