Have finished this painting for few days now, many of my friends said to me，"Your style is changing." Maybe the style of my recent works are getting more morose or temperance, but I think it is just one of my explorations. I still like those sweet styles I drew before and I will insisted on drawing them as well. Everyone changes, just like everyone's mood and emotion is changing all the time.
"Black Bird" this title reminds me the song of Beatles, like the lyric singing " black birds fly into the light of the dark black night." Beyond our body, beyond our mind, the inmost souls come out from our shell as those flying birds. In other words, it is a kind of "detachment".
Detaching from the objective reality, detaching self from the spirit of bondage, detachment is the liberation and enlightenment from the difficult situation. But detachment is relative as well, it is how to be selective to give up something lightly. All the troubles we face , all the things we bear, all the patience we had, All above of them are the experiences and witness of relative freedom that we try to get from those massive constraints.
