Port of Last Call

Room 505|Ink on Xuan paper 30x30cm 2016

With ink lines and clumps I sketch the boat numbered TW-1949. And between the black and white of inks, a calm atmosphere rises around. The boat moors by the bank, up and down with the sea current. With a few touches, I sketch out its reflection and intersperse there with a flock of sea gulls which symbolize "safe and perseverance". Because when you see sea gulls, it means you are pulling over. Thus, it can be seen this boat has already moored safely. But heave knows, how many winds and rains it has crossed this year and how many waves and storms it has braved through?
