侯玉書早期的作品多為文圖並茂,作品中隨意出現的字母就像每個創作的解謎密碼,傳達來自生活裡的故事細節;另一個創作重點則是使用黃金比例的色彩、塊狀比例及顏彩堆疊,讓其作品呈現精緻的和諧組合,隱約神秘的特性,成為繪畫中的質感與語彙,也帶來令人感動及正面的能量。
侯玉書在藝術上的創意,其實持續傳遞著一種富有穿透力的正向思維和能量,而這種思維和能量讓更多的觀者擺脫物質主義羈絆而走向自身內心,把藝術創造無比生動地轉化為一種新紀元式的靈修方式。

George Ho graduated from Harvard University and was conferred an A.B. in Visual and Environmental Studies in 1990.  Following that, he proceeded with an Intensive Program in Painting, Drawing and Sculpture at the New York Studio School from 1992 to 1995. He established his personal painting studio in New York City in 1995 and relocated the studio to Taiwan in 2004.

The majority of Ho’s early works were paintings well combined with scripts, in which the handwritten letters shown at liberty were just like ciphers to solve the mystery of each work, and further conveying the details of stories from life. Another key motive of Ho’s creation was to employ colors in golden ratio, block-shaped patterns in proportion and piling up the pigments, so as to make the works take on refined and harmonic compositions; meanwhile, the indistinctly mystic characteristics exuded from the paintings had become his artistic language and remarkable texture. Moreover, the artist hoped that his making of art could bring the viewers impressive and positive energy.

As far as creativity is concerned, George Ho’s art constantly transmits positive thinking and energy, not only teems with penetration but also makes more and more viewers break away from the materialistic shackles and return to their inner world. For Ho, the making of art can be immeasurably and vividly converted into an epochal way of spiritual formation.
