Junzhong Zhao regards artistic creation as the painting language of life form, not external work; it is the interaction between life and painting, forming an autopoiesis interactive network, a kind of Autopoiesis (autopoiesis) as mentioned by modern cognitive science The network dynamic system, the spontaneous transformation of painting, is to repeatedly produce its own network through the interaction of brushstrokes, and realize the mutual induction of each element in the emergent whole, both in the network and through it, and can also Keeping free patrols on the border inspires possible tendencies that continue to emerge.

The artist himself believes that a mature painter is in this era of increasingly virtual and network intertwined, constructing the self-created formal language of individual life forms, and inventing his own emergent vitality and imaginative space.

After many years of creating imagery landscape oil paintings, Junzhong Zhao began to explore a more pure painting language. The artist himself began to abandon images and completely abandon the previous techniques, starting from simple lines, which are strictly speaking “line symbols”. Starting from the basic elements, it is a short line, a broken line, and endless repetition. Because of the subtle changes in brush strokes and the dexterity brought by the artist after countless repetitions, a dense and colorful net world is formed inside the picture. The world of shapes is the life form of the individual artist and the emergent form of self-creation.

The difference in thickness of the line symbols, the transparency in the interweaving and superposition, the construction and occlusion of the depth illusion, the strength of the brush strokes give rise to the paradoxical perception inside and outside, the strength of the color forms a complex and rhythmic change, and the sharp highlights The fusion of softness and softness forms a subtle sense of depth, intertwined into a seemingly tight network, but there are free passage gaps in it, and, between the inner depth of the plane and the outer bulge, the lines are scattered and aggregated Between the rigorous production and the poetic atmosphere, there emerges unprecedented intensity and poetry.
