What is “Shanshui” – The Exploration of Inherent Beauty of Chinese Paintings
January 20, 2022
“Edith Heath and Emily Carr: From the Earth”, organized by the Vancouver Art Gallery, presents the work of two artists who were profoundly influenced by the land and landscape. As the major community partner, Poly Culture America is proud to present a series of exhibition-extended programs with Vancouver Art Gallery. Inspired by this exhibition, Poly Culture North America and Vancouver Art Gallery jointly produced a series of exhibition-extended programs. The first episode Why Shanshui——Exploring the Inner Beauty of Chinese Shanshui Painting discussed the pursuit of inner beauty from both Chinese Shanshui painting and Western landscape painting, highlighting a harmonious relationship between nature and human beings.
