 Xue Xing- Biao “ The Spirit of Abstract Freehand Brushwork”
 Xue, Xing-Biao’s paintings have become as refined and elegant as the artist’s life.
 


Abstract is the intrinsic property and sublimation of concretization. It takes mood and charm for the heavenly frame of art. Xue mentioned that Xie-He placed “vigorous Chi” in the first place in his essay Theory of Six Principles of Painting. “Chi”, expounded as the vitality of the universe in ancient Chinese culture, as well as “Yun”, the metaphor of melody in harmony, have revealed the spirit of painting as a visual art: vivid, harmonious, refreshing and sweet-sounding.
 
In Xue’s impressionistic realm, the artist takes a wider view with great momentum: freehand brushes strive for simplicity and avoid the minor minutia in the pursuit of Chi and Yun. Through the cadence of strokes, he smoothly transforms conception into shapes. With the simplest figures and elaborate complexity, Xue has created a “second nature” above the real realm. The signifying vastness is exactly the oriental artistic embodiment of Chi.
 
The intangible should reveal the nature of existence better than the tangible. Without limitations of time and space, implicitness lives beyond reality.
 
Li ,Ying-Wei “ Glistening Serenity”
 
The captivating, exquisite techniques and unique color tones are ways the artist expresses his perspective on society and personal memories. The visual impacts are present with well-organized and delicate layers, conveying the sense of passing time and its mellowness through a serene and calm atmosphere. The work communicates cold environmental and cultural reflections amidst a seemingly ideal habitat.
 
In the other work “Raining Season,” the artist leads the scenery into an obscure and poetic level. What this work depicts is more than the production of form; it includes the blurriness of the imagery. Li completely merges the state and inner landscape of the creator into the work, giving life to the image. Li Ying Wei enlarges memories of growth in the natural world as well as surreal illusions and changes of the mind after experiencing civilization. Using black and white, the basic elements of all things, the focused temperament of authenticity, modesty, and simplicity is incredibly charming.
