Beyond the Light
This is a contemporary art exhibition that blends life and nature, east and west, philosophy and belief.
“What is light? When light shines into reality, there comes colour, when it shines into the heart, there
comes hope. Light is like a belief that can sanctify life. Beyond the Light refers to an existing supreme
and abstract state that transcends sanctification and solemnisation” the painter attempts from this
perspective to examine the world and search for the truth of art and life.
He Zige’s brush effortlessly brings onto canvas gorgeous and elegant colour fusions and skilfully
blends the abstractions from contemporary western art and traditional oriental art, making his artwork
unique. With a sincere and innocent heart, he expresses deep emotions for life on canvas, which also
reflects his thoughts on Chán (the Chinese precursor of Zen Buddhism).
“I wish to travel through the painting with audience together” said He, hence we are invited to this art
feast to absorb ourselves in his canvas and find our inner “light”.
