GRAPHITE

I always recall myself enjoying drawing with twigs and pebbles on the ground in my early childhood before I was given pencils and notebooks. Then picking a pencil, my notebooks, textbooks and desk became filled with my drawings...

   Pencil drawing is always my favourite practice in all art forms since my childhood. It is so simple that even an infant can do it yet it’s often so demanding…, certainly it’s nothing less than drawing that requires of all artists a great skill to observe, understand and depict things as they are. It is not easy. Needless to say, it is the most fundamental skill in all art practices. I always recall myself enjoying drawing with twigs and pebbles on the ground in my early childhood before I was given pencils and notebooks. Looking back, It was always autumn for me to launch a new thing or turn to a new direction. Then, in course of time, my first conceptual drawing series "autumn leaves" were born. Since then I‘ve been exploring to enhance this concept in drawing. Talking about autumn leaves, for instance, they are nothing but the object fallen into decay, yet that is why they are totally "open" to viewers as if Vincent Van Gogh firstly introduced this concept when he painted "a pair of boots" over a century ago; which provided the platform for Martin Heidegger's philosophical debates.
