“Chinese landscape paintings, Shan Shui, are not about depicting objective sceneries, they’re about the contemplation of humanity’s position and scale in relation to the world. I hope to rediscover the relevance of this traditional theme for the contemporary world, as well as the implication of painting for such relationships.“
Well established artist He Sen (b. 1968 in Kaiyuan, Yunnan province) is renowned for his iconic landscape compositions merging traditional features with a wide range of contemporary elements and meditative shades, conveying vibrancy and new perspectives. His artworks evoke a sense of musicality; they seem to follow a rhythm and a natural development of a lyrical composition.
