“The tension of using both the scanner and ink on canvas aligns with trying to bring these intangible moments and emotions to something that can be seen. With my education in the history and practice of traditional Chinese landscape painting I found there are similarities in the ancient art practice and using technology as a painting tool. There is a level of control and of chance. Much like the controlling and yielding to the ink simultaneously in Chinese landscape painting, I controlled several factors in the settings of a scan as well as moving lighting and the object in question, but the result was always a play with chance. The same concept applies to our personal narratives. There is a level of control, but I am particularly interested and fond of the “yielding”. This work encourages the viewer to do the same. To listen, interact, and yield to the telling of a human being’s story.”
