This is the fifth solo exhibition artist Wu Hsichi has held at Powen Gallery. Wu currently lives in Toucheng, Yilan where he is surrounded by the treasures of nature. He incorporates the philosophy of Buddhism in his work. The repeated motif of Guishan Island and the outline of human figures become his unique expression.

In his new series of works, Wu continues to explore human nature and the environment. Sometimes he goes with his instincts and generously paints with different colors. Other times, he imitates the ancient ink landscape painting to portray the Buddhist’s idea of “seeing one’s essence”. With neat and dense lines, Wu employs the mountains, waters and human figures as metaphors, to depict the ephemeral nature of the world. The lines also symbolize shackles of the flesh and the never-ending challenges throughout a life.
