Recently, I held a solo exhibition in Spain and participated in the 5th International Mezzotint Festival in Russia. In these two exhibitions, I got many inspirations and new ideas when I interacted and shared with many international excellent printmaking artists. Therefore, I would integrate these new ideas and techniques that I learned and implement them into my recent creations.
In my point of view, interpersonal relationships are just like the stars running in the sky. Each star has its orbit; sometimes, they will meet or never meet each other forever. The relationships between people are also in the same situation. Therefore, every encounter of people is a miracle moment and a kind of destiny.
Thus, the theme of my proposal for IMPACT 11 will be the ‘Star Atlas’, which also represents the relationships of people. My primary medium of creation is printmaking that combines collagraph and carborundum. Generally, I will make two printmaking works that regard the galaxy, the size of each work will be 200 x 40 cm, and the orientation of the works are horizontal. Moreover, I would use the technique of viscosity intaglio to create my works, which is using the different viscosity of inks in one printing plate.
In my works, I will let those colours of inks flow and mix naturally after the press to display the rhythm and magnificence of the universe. That is, my works of the star atlas series will simulate the view of a spaceship captain who travels in the deep space of the universe. I expect the works would demonstrate the beautiful and distant space, the planetary motion, and the orbits of the planets, etc. Also, I would like to illustrate the relationships and destiny of people through the works that contain stars running in the universe.
