Yeachin Tsai - Recent Work/ Show Opening

“Yeachin Tsai’s paintings are exuberantly au courant. They are delightfully engaged with process and craft, transparency and movement, and the alchemy of colors as they hover near each other or overlap to create new hues. Their spherical shapes are believable bouyant in air or water and veer towards optimism even when rendered in a darker palette. As a collection, the works combine a sense of the scientific with aesthetics that allude to, but sidestep, the genre of pop art. They are not afraid to be alluring of playful as they address notions of physics, chemistry, and visual perception.”

Life remains a mystery to us. The unknown territory of how life evolves is beyond reach still. Where we are from? Where we are going? Everyday is a blessing to me.

We can go to the moon, Mars, and other galaxy, but can we look into ourselves even deeper, and find how the mystery of our lives? History of evolution in our cell has so much information. All is marvelous.

Dot in the Space

A dot in the space. Primordial dot. Before everything begins. Before our thoughts get complicated and tangled. Before we start getting into emotional, worried, offensive or defensive, like or dislike... A dot is a dot; a dot only. All other line and shape and form come after that. A dot is free.

Sing the songs you really want to sing,
Do the things you really want to do.
Life is short,
Be brave, be confident, be radiant!

Sumi ink on rice paper (bamboo paper), mounted on board. The size is 9 by 10 inches. (Ready for hanging.)
