"When I first delved into Landscape Paintings, I was drawn to the boldness conveyed through the brush and ink. However, over time, I began to appreciate the works that restrained the tension and conveyed a sense of calmness.
The emotions that a landscape can evoke are not only external but also internal, which allows for a free expression of ink on the canvas, like a cloud covering the sky. This freedom of expression is symbolized by the wild cranes."
"I imagine a world where I can reach out and pick the stars. In life, we may have rolled in the mud and swamp, and as we grow older, we seem to become increasingly numb and comfortable with the status quo. These scenes bring back beautiful visions of the past, evoking courage, hope, and the possibility of change." said Ding Wenqing.
