Bamboo Structures on a Cloud-Shrouded Mountain
Style: Chouxiang Yunwei
摘自：International Art Museum of America
This painting in watery ink features a gracefully charming scene in which the real and surreal coexist. It seems as if clouds and mist appear and vanish suddenly. Multi-level structures and a pavilion appear faintly in the mountain valley. This is a wondrous place of mountains inhabited by immortals and heavenly grass as beautiful as jade. Superior beings who have transcended this world reside in the lofty thatched houses made of bamboo. Impressively flowing, vibrant and ethereal, the ink seems to float about, having no fixed place. A marvelous tone flows through this image, like a heavenly song wafting through the cloud-shrouded mountains.
The “Chouxiang Yunwei” style
The true appearance of the subject portrayed is changed in these captivating ink-wash paintings, resulting in an unconventional image that both looks like yet does not look like the actual subject.
