“Pipa Dream” serie, xuan paper and inks 138×69 cm, 2013 – 2014.
Story behind “Pipa Dream” painting series reminds somehow Bai Juyi’s poem “Pipa Song”. One autumn, I took part in evening cruise on the West Lake accompanied by pipa player. Her enchanting performance inspired me and some time later I spontaleously created twelve paintings. There was no draft, all at one fling. Each painting is composed only of Chinese character “dream” in a shape of pipa (Chinese lute). Character, beside reflecting that night’s dreamlike atmosphere, comes from the name of the player.
