A Peaceful Place

Room 2602|Acrylic on canvas 45x45cm 2017

In artistic creation, through the philosophical-level expression, shapes poetic and simple situations, and through shape conversion, the brushing and layout create a pure realm seems in a space seemed to be absent. With contemporary post-minimalist art style into the memories of seaside home, the art of simplicity shows the spiritual energy, scouring the heavy with grief and creating new visual image of the coast.

In his solo exhibition in 2014, Lin Wanshi chose the “Peaceful Ocean” as the main theme to explore the eternally unpredictable waiting and conditions that happen again and again in life, and the metaphysical choices made as a result. Through transcription of memories, he presented a sea view in his mind, a still space. The intention was to use plain colors and orderly transcription repeatedly to interpret anew a sea view he had once seen on a journey to connect to his memory and make the mental image visible. It was also a response from an artist’s indirect observation of society.
