Artwork Appreciation 20160018
TAO Kang’s modernist ink painting is based upon the atmosphere of his age and surroundings, and conveys the emotional state in human society by creating a rational, cold, and calculating atmosphere. Between Shores 2.3 bisects the composition into left and right panels to create a fractured landscape. The art composes of uniquely formed mountain peaks extending towards the distant horizons along a black lake contrasted with sky to create an infinite expanse. Dense formations of tiny white dots create a unique texture and sense of mass. The entire composition represents our desires for happiness and future aspirations as well as dreams that we could hardly attain soon. TAO Kang uses a unique vocabulary of modernist ink painting to deconstruct the tradition, leading viewers to contemplate the meaning of existence by witnessing the nature of life itself.
