Ancient seal-themed, Li offered an open-ended interpretation towards seal which was treated as keepsake, as symbol of status and identification. Works in this show are different from traditional ink paintings. They seem to be doodled while in fact containing profound intellection. The solidification and metallization of ink conveys discomposure, fear even a feeling of convulsion.


Li"s ink painting is kind of highly objectified ink painting. Being rendered the sense of binding, an exchange, or a present, which means the idea"s existence in different space-time. The works manifest ambiguity, uncertainty, transformation, variation ability, nonreligious, query towards social morality and pry into people"s inner world. All of these formed the knowledge of today"s world and the introspection of one"s own cultural environment. Years later, those keepsakes would present in an evidence library of one certain epoch with the manner of self-verification.


To Li, these works are both practiced and experimental. On one hand, it shows Li"s choice after his recognition of his personal history. On the other hand, it is his testimony of historical consciousness open for the future.

Li was split here: past, now, future, as well as the infinite unknown after the future.
