WuXing [Five Elements]

These small ink paintings play with ways of abstracting nature. WuXing refers to the five interacting forces of Chinese cosmology. By basing each square on just one of these forces—wood, fire, earth, metal or water—I am free to experiment with abstract texture and pattern, color and connotation.
