In my recent monumental paintings, including Imagination painted at the Lake Hotel in Taipei in 2017, I chose to use a background prepared with acrylic lacquer on large linen canvas. With the superimposition of multiple layers, the lacquer cracks and reveals the raw material. The pattern is then guided by these cracks. Shapes then emerge from the original material. For example, an elephant emerges from the pictorial matter and decomposes into infinite pixels. The eye of the animal looks at the spectator and questions him about the animal condition in this constantly changing world.
