Qi Act ∙ 炁躍躍
Aesthetics as a branch of philosophy is increasingly detached from the visual representation in Art. Practitioners are fascinated by concepts and lack mastery of brush work. The merit in visualising 'Art' is being jeopardised by distorted conceptualisation and myriads of ideas in the contemporary society.

The mineral colours are carefully composited to produce a rich coloured effect. Amongst the hazy 'Qi', fine lines and elaborate details are enigmatical to the whole landscape.
