Chinese ink painting is simple in form, rich in meaning and an aesthetic experience, and at once realistic and abstract. In its attempt to capture the essence of the subject, Chinese ink painting explores beyond the external appearance. It aims at lifting us to a transcending realm where the self is forgotten and worldly concerns distilled. Thus it is imbued with tranquility and even spiritual intensity. With the pliant brush and highly sensitive paper, this high art form demands union of the technique to master the brushstrokes derived from calligraphy, the artistic sensitivity and imagination, and the cultivation of ethical purity, intellectual and transcendental insight.
