Lot Essay

‘The scholars of East Asia have thought with the brush for centuries, using it both for writing and painting. The object before the eyes and the image in the mind are all constructed of points and lines, and expressed in rhythm with the rising and falling of the breath. Because of this, the viewer ... can observe the dynamic relationship between the painting and the canvas, the condition of the painter’s body, the movement of his heart, his character and the atmosphere of the age’ LEE UFAN
