For this group of works I chose simply solid geometric figures. They solemnly stand there, forming a peaceful yet mysteriously turbulent tableau. These simple forms represent the most basic shape of everything, thus all things develop from these forms. Just as is stated in the Tao Te Ching: one begets two, two begets three, three begets all living things. This symbolize a cyclical process, unceasing and eternal. The infinite possibilities for man and all things in the universe, both unique and complex. From this materialistic, exaggerated vision the artist wonders how can we return to life's most primal and original state.
