When the extra spirit of work breaks through our touch, the feeling makes a chemical reaction to awaken the self awareness, while every creative process of artists is a sublimation of studying the phenomena of nature in order to acquire knowledge. Zhu Xiangmin’s works always use a simple line to smoothly perform the full temperament and the inner spirit. I appreciate the simplicity, and the narrative is simple because each dot, surface and shape, forming a painting, carries his spiritual pursuit through the use of everyday surroundings, namely recording, this also makes it sublime. Its strength is neither virtual nor foreign but the self-induction of the co-existence of itself and the great life system. “Study the Phenomena of Nature” contains any being, including the tough everyday objects, a simple life element, a leap of the cerebral cortex, though never selected, it is all-inclusive and becomes more real, directly removing the gray intermediate zone, relative purity feedbacks to the common essence. Time flies with the space of the wind, leaving the “ideal”, which is the root of all arts, it’s about the issues and words, about all the pursuits, facing the fresh grains of life, while it is only vibrated by the art which is diverted from life. “Ideal” helps us to reveal the mystery of the art once again.
