The Moutain of Protection


Human beings have always relied on mountains. The sense of security that mountains provide extends beyond the basic necessities of material abundance; it also assures psychological stability. The silk scroll paintings capture purity, simplicity, and a sense of leisure, which stem from Yue Yichuan's study of traditional Chinese painting. Within these rational and balanced orders, there is also vitality and lively movement.

Ravine of Line


Maurice Merleau-Ponty believed that the artist's vision possesses a "passive mystery," a mystery hidden within the chasms of a gorge. When human civilization emerged, the first lines were drawn on the cave walls, marking their birth. The gorge extends beyond natural objects; it also stitches together the realm of the tangible with the realm of the spiritual.
