Description

Li Huayi seeks to recapture the elegance and fine texture of ancient Chinese landscape paintings while creating new abstract compositions for the modern world. Li begins his compositions by laying out large areas of ink washes. Next, he applies details of rock masses, trees, waterfall, clouds, and mist. While borrowing abstract, geometric forms of Western modernism, his brushwork depicting rocks and trees remains traditional.
