9780867196313: Fevolution

Eric Feng's highly acclaimed illustrative style is collected here for the first time ever, revealing his surreal and beautiful art blending East and West, past and present, natural and mechanical. Hovering between fantasy and reality, interwoven with natural and mechanical beings, Fevolution is about infinite evolutionary possibilities. Feric's translucent layers provide a window on both the clarity and complexity hidden below the surface of his hybrid creations.

About the Author:

POUSSIN ET MOISE 2

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Is my belief the motivation for my creations’
Or are my creations the basis of my belief’


Buddha has been part of my world since I was five.

I remember that whenever I was lazy or doing something I thought was clever but actually wasn’t, my mother would remind me that, whatever I did, Buddha would see it from above. That is, Buddha would punish kids if they didn’t obey their parents. On the other hand, Buddha would forgive people their mistakes if they sincerely repented. My belief in Buddha has since stayed in my life. ...

Maybe because of my rebellious personality, I always wanted to delve into the subjects that I couldn’t learn at school: anatomy, machinery, samsara (the cycle of birth, death and rebirth), and how all those things worked together. My idiosyncrasies, my nonconformity, made my school years an unforgettable nightmare.

Before every test or important exam, I would kneel down by my bed and confide to Buddha that I had not given myself to my studies. I prayed that Buddha would hear me and come to rescue me from the seemingly endless tests. ...I believed Buddha had his reasons behind the steeling of my physical body. I imagined myself as a monk going through the tortures as a task given by Buddha to practice my beliefs.

As a result of my discipline, I believe, Buddha answered my prayers! When most people had given up on me, Buddha opened up a door and led me to the field of painting. Painting became a way for me to share my enthusiasm for and interest in living beings, the human body, machines and samsara. ...

But this happiness didn’t last very long. After a while, I found myself lost, bereft of direction. For the longest time, I had struggled so hard under the pressures of societal standards. Suddenly, there was no battlefield for me to fight for what I believed, no one to prove my beliefs to. The stimulation from this process left as the pressure and tension disappeared. ...

Little by little, the Buddha I had missed started to emerge in my work and immerse it. Unconsciously, the abstract concepts of Buddha in my mind were manifested and visualized through my paintings. I drew the questions and answers to my pain and enlightenment. And I look forward to learning what creations my belief in Buddha will lead me to ‘or shall I say, to learning what beliefs my creations will generate’
