About:

My name is Yichun Huang. I am a visual artist graduated from Royal College of Art in Visual Communication. I am often working with abstract patterns, exaggerated brush strokes and rhythm to present the invisible things behind the material reality of our daily lives. The cubes of various forms and colours in my animation and digital paintings are used to abstractly represent the forms of the invisible world. If someone asks me why I paint, my answer is that I enjoy painting instinctively. I enjoy thinking with my subconscious mind. I enjoy creating rhythmic graphics. I enjoy establishing aesthetic order. I enjoy keeping exploring the spiritual world.

THE CUBE AND THE THREE PARALLEL WORLDS

My inspiration comes from the book 'Initiation' by Elizabeth Haich. As she writes: 'The cube is six in one and one in six and it consists of seven factors: the six manifested limiting planes and the seventh, unmanifested factor, its cubic contents. The key number of the three dimensional world is the number seven.' I believe the basic form of matter is the cube, so I created 'a cube world' where everything happens based on the energy behind all the manifestations of the visible world. This world is about the evolution of the soul of the cube as the energy behind the material world. From a Buddhist perspective it is possible to classify the external world into three different worlds. The first is ordinary consciousness in the physical world. The second world is the realm of dreams. The third world is that which is created by our minds or our consciousness. This project has three parts: the material world, the spiritual world, the dream world. I put these three parallel worlds together to form a three-dimensional world governed by the same laws as human beings.
