The Earth from afar - 地球与宇宙之间

Watercolor, pastels and markers on paper

72 cm x 45cm

The trick about this painting is to adjust your focus. If you focus on a flat image you will get the powerful duality and eternal cycle of night to day. If you on the other hand shift your focus left you can see the sun having warmed the ocean turns it into water vapor which slowly floats upwards and vanishes out into the dark night of space.

Many things in our lives are cyclical yet we often do not notice. Our daily, monthly, yearly or whatever we have, turns into cyclical routines which gives a certain result. That is why by changing a very simple habit that you do daily will have a significant impact on your life.

I took this very long and deeply thought idea, that has been pondered by wiser men than me for thousands of years, and I turned it into a piece of art. I find strong personal satisfaction in putting out work that will have a strong impact on the collective consciousness. If you are not adding to the improvement of society and the human race then, as a artist, I believe you are a failure.

Yes, it should be fun and many of my paintings are childish or cute or sort of just pleasantly colorful but there is more.

My message is that of unity over division, communication rather than confrontation and common respect for your fellow man wherever he or she might be from.

理解这幅画的诀窍在于,你从哪个角度去看。如果将这幅画整体一起看,你会看到我的画主题中经常希望表现的‘两元性’,和永恒轮回的白昼与黑夜。如果你把注意力移到左边,你可以看到太阳的温度蒸发了海洋,变成水蒸气,慢慢向上漂浮,消失在漆黑的太空中。

在我们的生活中,很多事情都有其周期性,但我们经常不注意。我们的每日、每月、每年或任何我们做的事情,都会变成一种循环的程序,随着时间积累,则会有结果。这就是为什么改变我们每天做的一个小的习惯,时间久了,会对我们的生活产生重大影响。

我用了这个很长的时间思考这个问题,当然,这也不是我的想法,而是别经过了几千年的充满智慧的哲学家的思考。而我只是把这种思想变成了一件艺术品。能通过艺术去传递一种集体意识是我工作给我带来最大满足感的部分之一。因为我认为,一个没有推进社会和人类的进步的艺术家,在某种意义上是失败的。

是的,我的画应该是充满童趣的,我的许多绘画被人认为是童真的,可爱的,或是愉快多彩的,但通过这些作品,我想表达的想法却是超越这表面的色彩与童趣的。

我希望表达的是通过艺术而建立联系与理解,而不是分歧与分裂,希望建立的是对不同的包容,对彼此的尊重,无论这个人来自于哪里。
