Tao’s visual research is divided into two main directions: firstly, he studies the relationship and effect of the transformation between images and the flat space of Gongbi Figurative painting, including the use of panoramic photography, image collage to respond to the spatial aesthetics of scrolls, and the application of Jiè huà(draw lines with the aid of a ruler) in contemporary Gongbi painting. Secondly, he researches the creation of “composite space”. In reference to the traditional landscape painting space, Tao’s work uses flexible composition to transform and recombine different points of view, and the use of screens in figure painting to construct a multiple image space within a painting. Tao’s traditional approach responds to new creative themes and compositional expressions and conveys contemporary life experiences and feelings in the pictorial exploration of contemporary scenery.
