I used to paint diary on continuous rolls of paper to create scroll paintings.
I cut these old paintings and repurpose them on canvas, along with acrylic painted shapes. New paintings are created from old paintings: A past me reorient in the present; a current me reflect bygone days.
Seeing far, it is a painting on canvas; looking close, it is a collection of mini scroll paintings. Each scroll tells a story; together they show the path of an artist life in an abstract way.
This new art form fuses Western and Eastern art materials and techniques.
