A changing landscape: the integration of computer generated mark-making and text with traditional Chinese ink painting

By K Yeung


This studio-based project aimed to find new approaches by which to activate Chinese painting, in order to fill the empty space of Chinese art history, which is the space of integration with computer technologies. I developed in my research, an "in-between" approach and hybrid style of Chinese painting by exploring the use of computer software to create rhythmic ink images, compose ink effects and forms; and investigated new pathways through the use of computer scanning, formatting, and printing out of images. In additions, I turned computerized Chinese Cangjie characters into Chinese landscape, simultaneously reviving and innovating Chinese painting in the computer age. Finally, I produced a series of Chinese paintings with hand painted and computer generated images and texts

Topics: Fields of Research, in-between, hybrid Chinese painting, synthesis, computer generated images, Cangjie, digital print, modern, innovative, juxtaposition, integration
