DESCRIPTION

This exhibition, themed with ‘Home of Ink Wash Paintings’, collects more than 100 excellent works of Mr Li Xiaoke in recent years, divided into three parts: ‘Home of Ink Wash Paintings’, ‘Trace of Snow-covered Tibet’ and ‘Landscape of Mount Huang’. These works contain his recollection of ‘home’ consisting of red walls, green willows, sophora flowers in lanes and bell in his daily life, spiritual attachment to the sky, land, people and things in the snow-covered Tibet he has visited nearly 30 times, and his personal reflections on Mount Huang, which has been depicted by countless masters since Ming and Qing Dynasties, especially his father Mr Li Keran. The works of these three themes imply the understanding of Mr Li Xiaoke about the lingering charm and thought connotation in Chinese artistic heritage, and highlight his exploration for language of ‘urban ink wash paintings’ and ‘landscape of Tibet’, and his expansion of content, which brings the traditional landscape idea into a new vision.
