Guo Kai’s brush captures the beauty of Huizhou, not in a solely realistic manner, but in response to his emotions, dreams, and personal perception of nature, in a balance between scenery and self, and also heaven and man. His landscape paintings are seemingly shrouded in layers of colorful dreamlike mist, in which blurry sunsets, aged trees, windy ponds, and vast mountains, sing with poetic resonance, giving the viewer a calming sense of spring. In his recent works, his brushwork, composition, and color have become even more refined and elegant, carrying the spirit of ancient masters, like a faraway breeze, into the golden age of the Song and Yuan Dynasties.
