2013年赴首尔参加国际交流艺术展,期间与参展的艺术家们同攀“雪岳山”。从远处观看整座山体,只见山势挺拔;登山时则别有另一番领会。在山顶,遇一僧人从寒风中走来,步履坚定。我想“仁者”,应该是这样平和又坚定的吧。采用韩国纸,希望原汁原味地记录我的所见所闻所悟。

In 2013 I visited Seoul on an international art exchange program, during which I climbed the Seorakan with other participating artists. Observing the mountains from afar I found it overpowering but when I ascended it I experienced another kind of feeling. At the summit of the mountain a monk walked towards us in steady steps against the freezing wind. To me the “benevolent” is a man who is as peaceful and steadfast as him. I used the Korean Paper for this piece of work in the hope of recording authentically what I saw and felt.
