DESCRIPTIONS:

01: Yin-Yang. I originally called this one 'Life and Death'. Well, basically the concept is the same. At the time I did this painting, in acrylics, I was becoming interested in eastern philosophy, and had just read a simple introductory book on Daoism. This was one of the first abstract paintings I did. At first, although already convinced I could produce 'representational' artwork, I believed I couldn't do abstract or surrealistic pictures, even though I liked both genres. One day, I took up the brush and discovered I was wrong.

02: Yin-Yang (2). A remake of the first piece. I remember feeling the first one seemed somehow messy, and I wanted something with more precise lines. The bottom part I split into two, with the left side meant to represent the organic world, and the right side the man-made world, both of which are only parts of the whole. Of course, in reality, if they were to be proportional, the man-made world would be a small sub-set of the organic, but trying to assign an 'accurate' scale to it seemed a bit too contrived.

03: Diamond. This is my favourite of my own abstract artworks, intended to inspire diamond-like precision in mental concentration. Well, I can't blame the artwork itself if that result didn't always come about!

04: RGB. I was getting more involved with CG when I did this one, and basically it's just an abstract of the 'RGB' colour profiling used on digital displays. Thus, it's almost all done in three ink colours, red, green and blue.
