Terrific to be in your circle. I might like 997 in mine. Can literature actually influence graphics arts of any kind in any way?

Draw one of my poems in one frame....like a painting. I doubt anyone will salute. However, you would have some " tall explainin' "  to do...LOL!

I like the semi-abstract flowers. How can an artist like you pick the colors or the spectrum of the colors?

Introduction

The main objective of painting is to express beauty, an aesthetic theory embedded in the art of Soon Lai Wai.

 

The first subject in the painting career of Soon Lai Wai was the flower. Traditional Chinese painting was the inspiration for Soon’s choice of Lotus flower as the theme by which he expressed his vision of art and beauty. Besides growing lotuses in his garden for personal appreciation, he travelled widely in Malaysia and Southeast Asia to appreciate different strains of the flower and their natural habitats. The lotus best exemplifies the virtuosity and originality of Soon Lai Wai, and generally wins the highest praise by collectors and critics. The broad leaves, succulent petals and long stalks allow the artist to explore a wide range of colouring in his compositions. His powerful strokes are most obvious in the lotus series, where Soon tries to break away with traditional art painting. He therefore adds wild and energetic brush strokes to enliven the works, his jagged lines, splash of colour, and white spaces are intended to harmonize layers of colour on canvas.

 

After travelling to such scenic spots as beaches and mountains, at home and abroad, the artist has fallen in love with semi abstract expression.

 

The rockscapes series absorbs the spirit of Chinese painting, especially the mountain stroke technical, and expresses it on canvas with oil paints. Its powerful strokes and their interplay with empty spaces serves to symbolize an abstraction of scenery or landscape. Profoundly inspired by Chinese philosophy, layouts, and artistic sense, the artist wants to express the local waterfall or rocks scene in their natural splendour.

 

The notion of “ dispersed to allow a horse’s passage yet dense to keep out even the wind” an old principle in Chinese art, is mediated by a focus on meaning over form. Calm and harmonious colours always interact and complement one another. Feelings of serenity and calm are inspired through his paintings.
