|A different vision: imagery and constructed scenery in landscape (In Cantonese)|| |
The special view emphasized in Chinese landscape painting produces a particular representation. The psychological process of a painter is transformed from viewing to constructing scenery. In the thousands of years of development in landscape painting, the styles from different dynasties are intertwined. Since the last century, modernism is infused into the concept of art and philosophical perspectives are involved in the creation of ink paintings. In this workshop, we will learn how to construct sceneries from classical landscape painting techniques of the past. Through the concept and practices of contemporary art, we construct our own psychological landscape. We hope to construct our peaceful personal spaces so as to stay away from stress in our urban city lives.
