Purify and Simplify（净化简化）
There was a time when I liked to use compositions consisting of different blocks of color to express the grandeur of mountain landscapes. I simplified the high peaks and great rivers as layered patches of color, and I even simplified trees and forests as little umbrella-shaped forms. These semi-realistic, semi-abstract paintings can give people plenty of room for using their imaginations.
Simplification is the essence of art. When objects have been simplified into semi-realistic, semi-abstract forms, you can say there is a resemblance, but it’s also unlike, or you can say it’s unlike, but there’s also a resemblance. You can also naturally simplify and purify your soul in the simplification process.＠
