The beauty of the scenery of Taiwan’s rivers is like good deeds, reshaped with different landscapes and seeping through every corner of the earth. The toughness of rock and the tenderness of water demonstrate a delicate grace amidst a majestic ambience.
Overlooking like an eagle, it depicts the magnificent landscape of Taiwan’s Central Range. The stroke is soft and delicate; the vision is broad and deep; the scenery is for one to soar.
This piece demonstrates the beauty of the main peak of Mountain Jade in the summer of Taiwan, symbolizing a transcending aesthetic pleasure. The changes of the light, the shade, and the clouds are as sacred as an epic. In own and with piety, the artist illustrates his affection toward the Mother Nature.
Portraying the snow scene on the east peak looking from the north peak of Mountain Jade, this piece employs the “grand monumental composition” commonly seen in the oriental paintings. Through the interactions among the void, the tangible, the clouds, and the mountains, it allows the spectators to experience the majesty of the Creator as well as the eternity of the cosmos.
