‘10,000 Thoughts’ by Ying Kit Chan

“10,000 Thoughts“ puts the mind in a contemplative place. It makes the viewer feel that we are one with the world and see that it is our friend, our mother and our home. Artist and professor Ying Kit Chan, chair of the department of fine arts at UofL, has crafted some extraordinary works, influenced by Buddhist, Taoist and Jewish philosophies, on the environment and nature. Chan imparts this wisdom through photographic prints and drawings, each handled with a smooth, understanding hand with an emphasis on oneness with the world around us. The thick, dark lines of Chan’s work have a stillness that puts the viewer in a meditative state and takes them on a much-needed contemplative vacation.
