Description

This abstracted ink landscape, with its dramatic mountain stream, is captured with a bird’s-eye view. It was produced late in the career of the artist, whose oeuvre includes landscapes, bird-and-flower and figure paintings in ink and sometimes bright colors. An industrial designer by profession, Araki’s landscapes reveal his personal devotion to traditional Chinese brush methods, learned first as a youth in China, and later through emulation of famed painter Zhang Daqian (1899–1983) in Taiwan.
