Meishan Pan - Artist Statement

Most of the images I created contain reflections of the spirit of the object’s own beauty. Some of my subject matter is about people's daily routines and a comment on human nature. My work tends to focus on the human faces because I always get touched at the moment when I see powerful aged faces, where you can tell a person's story by look at their face. My influences are first and foremost everything I see, feel and experience. Recently I am working with ink and charcoal to express face expressions. I enjoy showing powerful emotion through freely express with ink and charcoal. Inspired by playing with all materials and awed by the mystery of how their different creation processes occur, I am now exploring many patterns, textures and colours on different materials. While I use a variety of materials and processes in each body of work my methodology may be different. Though the theme of my work can vary from time to time, it always reflects what happens in my life.
