Ideas of Criticism

From the criticism of the image painting, he turns to exploration of the abstract painting, reflecting the impact of dualistic thinking in the Chinese art world from multiple levels. Hoping to take the "zero" attitude as his breakthrough to cleanse the vulgar sociological haze shrouded in Chinese contemporary art and prompting the self-innovation of language in Chinese contemporary art. The basic points of his recent reflection on Chinese contemporary art are rethinking and questioning, as well as the involvement in reality. Expecting to rethink the logical basis of Chinese contemporary art over thirty years and re-mention the present value of the transcendental art.
