“The Megaverse is Unperceivable”
The Spiritual Representation of the Oriental Elements in the Concept of Abstration
The rise of contemporary water ink paiting trend corresponds to the transformation of the modern state of society as well as the subtle human state of mind that yearns for change. The wheel of the world never fails to circle around its axis. In order to supercede one generation with another, the motion of each generation has always been following this circle. Whether in the field of art, architecture, music, design, or fashion, etc., the present age is blazing with the Oriental concepts. Everything interweaves and interfuses with one another under the umbrella of the Oriental elements. China, in the 1990s, has gestated a group of “experimental water ink painting art innovators.” Through methods applied to abstract patterns and mental imagery expressions, those artists endowed the language of water ink painting art with modernity.
“Experienmental water ink painting” is the significant product of a modernized China. Individual artists coming from different cultural backgrounds have dissimilar apprehensions for their status of life. Guided by their distinctive personal tone color, artists have developed a set of artistic creation. These artists inherited traditional Chinese cultivation. Though all devoted to the same art medium, the water ink painting, they differenciate in therir water ink painting skills. In drips and drabs, they paved the path to the fulfillment of humanism and revealed the Oriental elements with spirits of water ink painting.
