Yin Yang series #3 – 《Hand of Paradox》
阴阳系列 之三 《悖论之手》
 
Yin Yang is a new series of paired black and white images , that were inspired by ancient Taoist philosophy. In line with the other prints from this series, Hand Of Paradox examines the connection between natural forces and human power. The hands that are illustrated in the print can be seen as both palms and the backs of hands. The image is open to interpretation and is intended to inspire the viewer to find different meanings when viewing the artwork.
《阴阳》是以古代道家哲学为灵感的全新黑白系列作品。与该系列其它作品一致,《悖论之手》探寻了自然力量和人力之间的关联。作品中描绘的手既可以被看作是手心也可以是手背,整个作品为观者带来开放性思维,启发他们探寻不同层面的含义。
The artist asks us: do absolute extremes and polar opposites really exist? Can things in this world be described so simply as black and white, right and wrong, good and bad? The universe is endless with seemingly infinite possibilities – how much can we really control? And in which manner do we interact with the world? Do we go with its natural flow, or do we follow the rules set by man?
 
艺术家在画面中埋下这些问题:终极绝对和两极差异真实存在吗?这世上的东西真的能被如此简单地以黑白、对错或好坏区分吗?整个宇宙伴随着无穷持续的可能性,又有多少是我们所能控制的?我们又以怎样的方式与世界对话?我们只是顺其自然,还是受绊于规则?
