| △ Tai Chi is an important concept in the history of Chinese thought. In 2007, the Olympic Games were about to start in Beijing in 2008. The artist saw the "Olympic 2008 Graphic Art Competition (Taiwan)", so he created this composition! In the picture, it is not directly represented by the etheric tai chi pattern. Instead, the S-shape is chosen as the main axis of the picture to serve as the boundary between yin and yang, and the background is the sea seen from the corner of Taiwan's Hongmao City. How to achieve a natural balance with the relationship between shadow, fire and smoke, movement and stillness, light and darkness? These are life lessons.|
I like the feeling of shadow the most in the whole painting, especially his front feet skillfully combine the corners of the stones to naturally form a forward bow posture; and the vitality and explosive force generated by the color of the flame can shock people; the softness and transparency of the smoke, It relieves the pressure caused by fire; because of the fire, shadows and smoke are produced, because of the smoke, clouds naturally form, and clouds form rain, irrigate the earth, and thus all things grow, and hundreds of rivers converge into the sea...etc. The natural laws of the universe, in the It is the very important spirit of expressing Tai Chi.
The steadiness of the shadow, the explosive power of the flame, and the softness of the smoke, all three form a system of their own and dance with rhythm, transforming human figures and dancing Tai Chi with surreal techniques. This work was selected out of 100 works and entered the final with 12 painters. Although it did not win the prize in the end, it is a work that the artist likes very much. I hope it can bring you beyond imagination and enjoy Tai Chi in life. wisdom. (author and painter)
