Leaving blank spatiality (留白) takes a significant part of my painting. Upholding blank space (white), in traditional Chinese painting, signifies an emptiness as another side of solidity (black). In a very real sense of "blank space", actually it is not a “space in vacuum”. That is a part of painting but without painting, nor being an expression but unexpressive. On one hand, it hints to represent the sky, the cloud, the mist, the water to depict stillness of nature. On the other hand, it creates an open-ended ambiguity to present various possibilities on a boundless space which allows the free flowing of Chi (“Qi” in Chinese pinyin 氣, it means vital impetus) and Wen (Yun in pinyin 韻, vital rhythm).
