Continuing and Evolution: A Case Study of the Arts of Song Dong and Zhang Huan
Contribution to Book
In contrast to most current research on contemporary Chinese art that emphasizes the breakaway from traditional aesthetics, this paper focuses on the aesthetic continuity in both traditional and contemporary Chinese art and aims to demonstrate that it endures despite all the historical, societal and political changes through the centuries. In this paper, I will examine the influence of the aesthetics of Chinese Chan Buddhist art in the works created by Song Dong (b.1966) and Zhang Huan (b.1965).
