This work, entitled “Lotus”, is an ink and color painting on paper and depicts the lotus flowers and the birds. Lotus has an honest and upright implication in the Chinese culture. In Zhou Dunyi's Ode to the Lotus Flower, lotus was described as “grows in mud, yet never contaminates with it. Floats on waving water, yet never dances with it”. Lotus has been referred to as the Gentleman of Flowers in Chinese traditions. The theme of the work originates from the Chinese traditional and popular paintings of naturalistic flowers and birds. Its brushwork and painting style are based on the Chinese traditional combination of fine brushwork and freehand brushwork, with modern realistic colors, perspective and to some extent modern abstract elements added. Its style is unique.
