On an art exhibition in New York last November, I unexpectedly met the CEO of the American International Photographers Union(AIPU) Ms. Liang Yang, from my hometown Sichuan, who came to the opening ceremony. Meeting fellow oversea is a bit more kindly, and I never thought that she would love writing about character biographies and traditional Chinese painting and calligraphy. I personally love character painting, especially Tibetan characters. Creating figures is our common hobby, therefore leading to today’s cooperation: the author requests the painter to write something about the works on Tibet, and that stumped me. Usually people talk about theories and technics, but those are the old ways, especially when I am just an ordinary painter, there are no deep art theories that I can give. After thinking about it for a while, I finally decided that it would be more friendly to describe some relevant stories of myself and my works.
Without knowing, it is almost the third year to live in Boston, the homesickness increases every day, kinship, friendship, food from Sichuan, and especially the experiences in Tibetan areas were stuck in my head. Only when I have my paintbrush on my hand, I can get bits of peacefulness……
Particularly the midsummer in 2015 and the midwinter Tibetan New Year in 2016 were the most unforgettable. The scenes of both times of folk-mining sketch in Xiahe County, Gannan, are still vivid when I gaze at the works.
In the summer of 2015, the grand Labrang Monastery held an "Abhiseka Ceremony". Around 400 thousand Tibetans from all directions and hundreds of kilometers away arrive and set up camps on the grassland. On the day of the ceremony, a sudden heavy rain fell in the morning, and I thought it must mess up everything. Surprisingly, the Tibetan people were so calm, in the tent, under the umbrella, in the plastic cover, tens of thousands of them waited quietly for the start of the event. At this moment, I was deeply shocked: as long as there is faith in the mind, life and death are excluded.
I want to use a set of works about the "Xiahe Puja Ceremony" to express my feelings…..
