Art Statement The hands of the creator have designed and created this world. He decorated the world with infinite colors. I love to take my camera with me to discover all the beautiful colors around us. Colors are also ways to express our feelings, moods, and personalities. Pablo Picasso once said, “Color, like features, follow the changes of the emotions.” In my photo book series The Trace of Colors, I chose four colors for each of the books, and then created images with the colors. Every color has its own meaning, and gives people personal emotional experience. Chairman Mao wrote a stunning color poem to express his feelings when he saw the beautiful view after rain.
赤橙黄绿青蓝紫， 谁持彩练当空舞； 雨后复斜阳， 关山阵阵苍。
There is a rainbow of seven colors in the bright sky Who dances with color ribbon in the serene sky? Newly over is the rain, there appears the sun setting again Now greener are passes and hills in view so plain.
What is your color? Which color are you feeling right now? I hope you enjoy the journey with The Trace of Colors, and start your own journey with the colors around you. Special thanks to Lisa J. Paker for all the color metaphor poems.
