“Through works of art as well as the framework that I am building to foster the creative development with ARTSCIENCE, my wish is to invite people to enjoy this mental state as well and have a collaborative experience. The point is, it is about play, about being in the moment. It is a musical thing.”
In recent years I have asked myself the following questions: What is my real, authentic self? What am I good at? How can I use the knowledge I have learned so far to make a contribution to society and create added value?
The desire to follow my vocation and passion has developed, to make connections, to bring people together, to share and promote knowledge, creativity and talent. ArtScience. It has never been a decision, either or, “but always, both and“. Both, Asian and Western culture and values. Both art and science. Both, being a radiologist and an artist. Against this background, I share a deep resonance with Zao Wou-ki. As a synesthete, I paint the music I am listening to. For me, painting is a form of meditation, music and art a key to the collective subconscious and creative flow.
In the flow, you leave consciousness aside. "A person paints with his brain and not with his hands," said Michelangelo. Music is made up of vibrations and frequencies, the same goes for colours. "We see colours, but not wavelengths." wrote C.G. Jung, who dealt deeply with the collective subconscious.
"If you always set limits, on everything you do, physically or everything else, then this will result in limits in your work and your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus. And you must not stop there, you have to go beyond that.” - B. Lee.
I am convinced that there is creative potential in each and everyone of us, we just have to find the right key for the door. And what is more fun than making this a shared meditative & creative experience and exchange? I am looking forward to shaping the future creatively with you and I am looking forward to meeting your creativity.
