Abstract/Artist's Statement

Artist Statement

Mengyun Han

“The question is how to find peace in a world of suffering. You ask why I came hither, I cannot tell the reason. I am living high up in a tree and looking down. Here I can rest free all trouble like a bird in its nest. People call me a dangerous man, but I answer: "You are like devils."

-- K'un-ts'an

My paintings do not beg your understanding. Asking what they are is the same as asking what human beings are. So abandon your quest for meaning and I invite you to become a traitor to your civilized soul.
