Perspective is what sees through the work.
It is not about searching to find something when viewing with advertence or idleness, rather, it is about natural coexistence and influence within silence. It is hoped that through the painting one would experience gentleness and suavity. That can be of feeling, wisdom deep within or an energetic movement.
For such experience landscapes are an excellent subject matter for the artist to take in the visual subject with intent and demeanor. An artwork is what reflects such experience and acts as a medium for both the artist and the viewers.
Especially in eastern Asia one’s outlook on universe and philosophy existed in forms of heaven-earth unity, immortality and characterization. With full energy of the universe, being one with nature as one enters the godly realm was pursued. It was often symbolized by elements such as the wind, the cloud, a crane and a pine tree.
These elements were implemented in the work to represent the harmony with nature and using space to portray the strong energy of nature’s construction.
And thus, the pursuit of showing one’s aesthetic sense of modern culture combining both Oriental and Western techniques actively continues on.
