The atmosphere of nature
This study aims to explore the atmosphere of imagination underlying humanization and nature. The atmosphere of imagination refers to the image that an artist creates to convey his/her personal emotion via his/her selection of particular symbols. These symbols can derive from the artist＇s personal experience, so can they be imaginary characters. To me, the symbols I selected not only represent the joint concern for environmental protection but they express my interest in interpersonal issues. The present thesis is outlined as follows. Introduction: The introductory section states the author＇s motivation, contents, and methodology, the focus of which lies in the exploration of mind and the understanding of the value of life and nature through art creation. Chapter 1: Chapter one reviews some related theories, particularly those of Western Artist sect that have had great influence on the author＇s conception of creation and his way of thinking. Deeply affected by the Western art, the author has been making use of thoughts and ways of some specific period in the Westeren Artist, such as Renaissance＇s desire to depict the beauty of nature, to create his art works. Via exploring the richness of nature, one should realize that what defines realism is no longer the pursuit of superficial appearance, but is the closeness to nature as advocated by Barbizon School, the reference to humanity as highlighted by social realism, and personal imagination of realistically. The ultimate goal is to link such realization with the background of Romanticism and the meaning of Symbolism to construct metaphorical images that can inspire viewers. Chapter 2: Chapter 2 is the reflection of personal creation via the association of art, humanity, and nature. The author tries to seek for a balance between his concern for nature and the relationship between nature and humanity in his creation of art works. He tries to clarify the role of art, humanity, and nature by exploring how the three interact and further to extend his experience into the atmosphere of imagination based on the concept of environmental protection. Chapter 3: Chapter 3 regards the form of creation and expression of material. This chapter describes the author＇s view of the value of art creation. He deems art a media for an artist and his/her viewers to communicate and converse. His creations attempt more than the aesthetic perception. Instead, he expects that his metaphorical creations can inspire viewers to take environment seriously and to have introspection of their personal experience. Moreover, the expression of delicate and bright is crucial in displaying the artistic features the painter wishes to present. Without the expression of life, the painter cannot manifest his innermost vitality, nor can he accomplish art works of soul. Chapter 4: Chapter 4 is the analysis of the author＇s art works. By linking to every kind of the atmosphere of imagination, this chapter reveals the author＇s state of mind when creating his art works. In different phases of creation, the author exploits different symbols to show how he thinks highly of environmental protection. Conclusion: Finally, the author shares his perspectives and products at present, as well as his attitude toward and expectation of his future artistic creation.
