Wisdom from the old days sometime is just like a joke for today, What does tradition mean today? How it is perceived and what does it contribute to our contemporary life? I went back to lookup at traditional Chinese Painting, which I always failed during my school days. This work, Past Continuous Tense, is formed by those questions and copying of images of trees from ink paintings including Korean and Japanese.

對於當今來說,古人的訓話有時可能變得如笑話般。傳統是如何地被感知?與當下的關係及其作用如何?我重看以往在學時期學習得非常差勁的傳統水墨畫(包括日本及韓國的作品),再通過重畫,結合及對她們總總的問題,創作了這件「過去進行式」。
