I like gentle and simple people; in this regard my assistant Yang Xincheng is a very generous person along with the other assistants. The gentleness of the natural beauty of Guilin gives me again a source of inspiration which is very naturally arrived in this sculpture. Basically this is the third country where I have worked but I have been to several Asian countries which have a tremendous beauty of Nature. Like India, Japan and China, every part of the world are beautiful by nature and the people. In this context nature is my first main source of inspiration. Feeling and sensation drawn from this dual source take me the depth of life. Rhythm and movement inherent in them bring about changes and provide clues to life’s hidden roots. The varying forms of life in nature constantly enrich my imagination and make way into my work. As these forms take shape in my sculptures they undergo change and result in a variety of inflections. Nature provides the forms and substance too.
I am happy that I have created a sculpture which I called "untitled Image’ and the subtitle is "Landscape-Water-Sculpture’. For me it makes me very joyful that my sculptures always become a part of the environment; certainly here too, like a very scenic beautiful landscape of Guilin. The mountains of Guilin give me an impression of Lotus’ petals surrounding the "Li-River” with several lakes, pools where the water always remains the life.
In this work, the nine groups of Lotus petals are surrounding the esquire lake with three steps where the water remains all the time. ‘Water is of as mach use in a landscape as Blood is in body’, wrote William Gipih in 1948. And it is still true today in more senses than one. For almost every aspect of our daily activity is in some way connected with water, and the manner in which it is brought into our lives demands skills and understanding on the part of the planner, architects and Landscape-artist.
The gentle life of people gives me an impression of living peacefully, living together and making the life meaningful for the human being. "God” makes the all creations for us and the great artists create a great work of art for this wonderful world. Nothing is new but every great creation is new for us.
I like music too, which is emotive and quickens one’s sensory perception and transports one to new height. The intensity of the experience acquires a tactile quality that is physical. Music merges the tangible with the immaterial. It touches the very depth of being: Nature and music unfolds the two aspects of the tactile senses; the material and the intangible. I constantly strive to invest my work with tactility that goes beyond the limitation of the physical. The sense of force envelopes all the other senses perception like Guilin—touches my feeling, my heart and all the my senses.
