如意 (wishful)


The spotted deer depicted in this painting shows a balance between the Song Dynasty (960 -1279 A.D.) painting style and contemporary realistic painting that the artist is seeking. The portrayal of the pine tree in this painting is also influenced by the style of ancient Chinese paintings. A flowing stream draws the viewer into the scene. It also symbolizes blessing, good fortune and longevity.

Translated by Toni Zhang McAfee and Dr. Jan Walls.


《空林飲溪》關於梅花鹿的描繪作者從宋畫與寫實之間找到了平衡的表達方式,古松的刻畫也取法山石。涓涓細流讓人很容易進入畫境,亦有福祿綿長之意。
