至樂 (Ultimate Happiness)

心遊物外 (Mind travels outside the heart.)


This painting was created on the day of the Duan Wu Festival (also known as the Dragon Boat Festival, which is the 5th day of the 5th month of the Lunar Calendar) of year 2019 by Jiangang Su at the south window of his Ye Shan Fang (Leaf and Mountain Studio) in Vancouver.

The character depiction in this painting is very vivid, and the detailed description of the character in the opening phase and the concise expression of clothing patterns form a contrast in the painting’s density. The dot, line and plane relationship formed by the old pine, the crow, and the well-written small-scale inscription poem is also remarkably interesting, bringing people into the tranquil mood of the monastic abode.

Translated by Toni Zhang McAfee and Dr. Jan Walls.

《掃地僧》該作品表現人物非常傳神,從人物開相的細節描寫與服飾衣紋的簡練表達形成畫面的疏密對比。一棵老松一只烏鴉和一首精到的小楷題畫詩形成的點線面關系也十分値得玩味,把人帶入禪房幽靜的意境之中。
