繪事廿載,五年前始用枯木沾墨作畫。「點」「線」漸能得心應手,唯灰階之「面」,除濃墨稀釋渲染之外,久無他法。後偶然之間,發現以乾筆拂刷水彩紙可得暈染之趣,遂命之為「乾染法」。至此墨畫點線面手法略臻完備。《墨間》乃以此法與水墨傳統對話,嘗試反思與新詮。

I started using dry twigs and Chinese ink to draw in 2011, beginning with “dots” and “lines”, but I had to use diluted ink in order to achieve a grayscale “surface”. Later I found that the ink midtone surface can be achieved by rubbing ink with a dry brush on watercolour paper. I call this technique “dry wash”. With this technique, the drawing method with pure ink and twigs has become more complete. Ink-Between represents my dialogue with the traditional ink painting, with an attempt to re-think it and give it a new interpretation.


Moleskine的味道

這是我第四本Moleskine水彩素描本。每當一打開新的素描本就會嗅到一種畫紙的味道,我把它稱為Moleskine的味道。嗅到它時會把我的記憶帶回到初次在台北誠品買我的第一本Moleskine,第一次在華山創意園寫生。
