Sketches. Pencil, ink and collage on paper, 2018.
These compositions literally play on the title “On the Road,” as landscapes of figures on expanses of pavement. Alternately, these solitary figures in a paved and demarcated life ask us whether it is or not a “small world.” The paintings intend to harbor the character of traditional Chinese landscape painting, where there is no discernible horizon line, and where the human figure is often dwarfed in a monochromatic swirl of dots, dashes, and lines.
