Typology of Vague Distances, 2020 

Oil on canvas, each 120'90cm

Vague Distances is a series of three paintings each consisting of three simple elements of greenery seen from a studio window:  forest on the hill, a tree and an indoor plant present in the studio at the moment of painting. 

 

The triptych is inspired by Guo Xi's spatial theory - the Chinese Song Dynasty painter, who developed "three levels of distance"  namely high distance(高遠), deep distance(深遠) and level distance(平遠).

 The series explores a multi-focused perspective with a movable viewpoint, imitating the process of viewing itself as well as its culturally predetermined  nature.
