The Scripture of a Missionary of Modern Ink Painting

Liu Kuo-sung Print Catalog Vol. I

In order to continue promoting Liu Kuo-sung’s art, and also to share Liu’s achievements with more art lovers, Loftyart Gallery has decided to help Liu Kuo-sung produce a series of prints. Prints are similar to a missionary’s scriptures, for sharing with the world. While the prints are reproductions of Liu Kuo-sung’s artwork, they are designed and printed with Liu’s distinctive techniques and motifs in mind, and remain faithful to their original inspirations. This statement is recognized by Liu himself, and under his authorization and kind guidance, Loftyart has commissioned a series of ten prints in woodblock, etching, and silkscreen print.

The themes and motifs of Gu Jing’s new ink paintings can be categorized as Paying Respect to Scholar’s RocksAppreciating Objects of the StudyAdmiring Flowers & Birds, and Wandering through Gardens, which not only reflect Gu’s artistic pursuit as an artist, but also her fascination and respect for the natural world. The serene atmosphere of her paintings is vividly attractive and invites the viewer into the composition. In terms of artistic creation, the composition of a painting is reflective a painter’s state of mind, and therefore only a mind at ease can ever create tranquil compositions.

Conscious Landscape

Guo Kai Solo Exhibition Catalog

Guo Kai’s paintings, in of both spirit and form, are very similar to the thought of Henry David Thoreau. They both advocate the escape from urban living, and the return to a natural environment. In terms of their highest ideal of living, it is to be one with nature. For Guo and Thoreau, they change with the seasons and go where the river takes them, where every landscape is an inspiration for either an essay or a painting.
