white black red: three colors give the title of the picture. Why in this order?
As in most of my work, these ideas from Chinese painting and calligraphy also flow into them.
I would like to take this opportunity to point out a special aspect that is of essential importance for the understanding of East Asian art: the importance of the non-represented, the nothing, the white.
A premise placed on the painter in Asian art is: respect the black but adore the white.
While we as western viewers usually have the black (line, surface in focus when we look at a picture, the Asians attach great importance to how well the artist knows how to leave out white surfaces, to give them meaning, and to artfully set them).
It’s relatively easy to create dynamics with your brushstroke. Creating dynamism with the part that you don’t paint is an exciting challenge to hear.
