The most representative art form of ancient cosmology and literati’s theory of time and space, Chinese ink painting has re-emerged as a contemporary artform, with embodiment of the experience and aesthetics of modern society.
The philosophy of the relationship between man and nature has long been intriguing since ancient China. Our ancestors had concluded that man is primordially centred in the the universe with heaven above and earth below. Man hence experiences a paradoxical state of being the primal life form, as well as an insignificant being in the universe, in an attempt to position ourselves among the subjective yet objective universe. The exhibiting artists express their own experience in aesthetics, semiotics, worldview and philosophy, answering these questions relating to time and space.
