Artwork Appreciation
Artist LIN Ru-Dao expresses his concerns about the environmental problems endured by man and nature in a whimsical way. In A Mirror-Like Sea 02: All Flows Away, the ocean swells with an incoming tsunami. At this instant, its mirror-like surface illuminates the destructive human ideas and behaviors going on in its immediate path. Lin is saying that humans mistakenly think they are the masters of everything, even the ocean. But blinded by their excessive ignorance and greed, they unwittingly end up being consumed by the vast ocean. In this painting, the artist warns us that if we keep recklessly overdeveloping, nature will engulf everything we have without mercy.
