Observation of Nature ― An Investigation of Artistic Conception in Painting
observation of nature
fusion of feelings with a natural setting
Abstract "Artistic conception"（意境） is nurtured by culture. Apart from poetry, song, painting, and calligraphy, in the context of everyday life, artistic conception is also seen in the design and construction of bridges, towers, and buildings, which add interest to life and reveal aesthetic cultivation. From the perspective of different artistic forms, conception may transmit and present life's tone at the micro level, and philosophical thinking concerning tolerance and respect for life and the universe at the macro level. In contrast with the Western emphasis on humanism's outwardly expanding power, the East's understated character adds a touch of mystery; this kind of subtlety, which can be understood but not spoken, pervades the core of conception. The notion of conception is derived from poetics, and has a close relationship with the development of Chinese literature, social change, and the cultural environment, where this system of thought combines the categories of literature, philosophy, aesthetics, and art. Conception is the observation of the true meaning of human nature and the emotion of society and the country, and is rich in intriguing substance and unique formal vocabulary, which express the spirit of Eastern culture. The fluctuations of weather, the changes of season, and the myriad living things all naturally have their own conception. Conception is always closely connected with imagery, and conception reveals all manner of scenery with the natural passage of time. This art project seeks to explore the purpose of conception, investigate the development of conception over the course of time, and its implications, examine the expression of conception in Eastern painting, and describe Eastern thinking of conception using natural imagery as a topic. The interpretation and transformation of natural themes can incorporate the characteristics and conceptual thinking of Eastern painting in works when oil painting is used as an artistic form. This art research project, which is entitled "Observation of Nature―An Investigation of Artistic Conception in Painting," investigates individual creative context and painting concepts, and examines the consistency between the substance and formal expression in artistic creativity. I hope that it will enable the reconstruction of my individual view of aesthetics and the formation of painting style.
