Exhibition of Cheng Jianwen's Oil Paintings


This exhibition features Cheng Jianwen's "Dot Series" works, in which Cheng aims to express his inner feelings through the simplest painting symbol - the dot. As for the ultimate effect of using "dots" as the main composition of the artwork, Cheng is uncertain. It is precisely this uncertainty about the outcome that fills him with a certain inner mood during the painting process.

The exhibition delves into the alternative exploration of the Buddhist teachings cited in the "Analects of Confucius" and the "Avatamsaka Sutra." As artists reach the age of forty, they instinctively sense the need to transcend external disturbances, embracing inner harmony and letting go of attachments. Just as travelers passing through a wayside inn, they recognize the impermanence of worldly pursuits and seek refuge in the stillness of their inner being. Through their artwork, they navigate the interplay between transience and permanence, echoing the teachings of the Buddha on the nature of existence.
