In his paintings, Qin explores the concepts of and the interconnection between civilization and desire. Ink and calligraphy remain key elements in Qin’s art, in which he juggles his traditional Chinese upbringing and training, and his experience in America and Europe which introduced to him concepts such as abstract expressionism.  Through the process of constructing characters and symbols, Qin embodies his masculinity, his spirit, and his understanding of human existence.
