"The original inspiration for my abstract work came from the Chinese ferula. When I saw those decomposed, ancient Chinese characters carved on the ferula, my thoughts and feelings about plants, life, history, culture, time, agony and so on all compounded in my being. And then in a short time, I expressed my feelings through brushwork that referred to the structure of the cell."
