24 SOLAR TERMS

24 SOLAR TERMS MAP

In each changing of solar terms, the ancient Chinese responded to seasonal changes with seasonal activities of nature, such as migration, hibernation, resuscitation, first warble date and breeding, and various flowers and trees will sprout ,leaf, blossom, and bear fruits. My series of water colorings, "Twenty-four solar terms map", will be fusing each solar terms of the animals and plants together, showing our ancestors’ long-term observation of the Mother nature in different regions of China. In each cycle of life and death, our ancestors realized the finite nature and the infinite possibilities of life.

在每个节气时令中,中国古人将自然界的飞禽走兽的时令性活动,比如迁徙,冬眠,复苏,始鸣,繁育以及各种花草树木萌芽,发叶,开花,结果等来反应节气的变化。我的系列水彩作品,24节气图,将代表每一个节气的动植物融汇在一起,展现了中国各地先民长期观察天地,摸索,感悟,总结出来的物候变化。在动植物的一岁一枯荣中,人们早已认识到生命的有限和无限。
