The paintings of Bang Hai Ja keep offering us new views of the universe. They are not the kind of paintings concerned only with the problems of the art of painting contemplating itself. They are not psychological paintings, prepossessed with introspection, with self-analysis - paintings in which (as they say) the artist's ego expresses itself. Neither formalistic nor expressionist nor introspective, Bang Hai Ja's paintings are first of all a look at the cosmos†: a look that admires the universe and helps us to admire its manifold beauty. In the eyes of Bang Hai Ja, light has various forms. Light is heterogeneous, defined by the source, in all its variety.
