Artwork Appreciation
YUAN Hui-Li uses the artistic language of traditional Chinese brush and ink painting to express her own views on environmental issues. Her Taixu Series creates a unique ""massive mountain"" style. In Taixu Series No. 17, YUAN Hui-Li uses the traditional brush and ink texturing method to meticulously depict the lines in rocks. Every mountain is different, creating ridges and peaks that do not connect, forming what appear to be man-made axe marks. The artist uses a painting technique for rocks is like modern landscape engineering, blending man-made actions into a naturalist scene, symbolizing the fact that with modern science and technology urban construction is expanding without bounds, filling the beautiful landscape with signs of industrial culture, leading to the breakdown of the ideal of a unity of Man and Nature. YUAN Hui-Li has broken through the established aesthetic view of traditional landscape painting and has turned visual creativity into a language for actual social introspection and has given voice to the meticulous questioning and criticism of a female artist.
