A Chinese Grid-combining Chinese and Western Approaches to Composition
Western researchers often choose classic Western paintings as research objects and less frequently consider the artistic works of other cultures. Similarly, Chinese studies have traditionally tended to focus on Chinese culture. At present, most Chinese domestic research on traditional Chinese painting is in the stage of theoretical analysis, which lacks practice-led research, let alone practice-based responses. This research project aims to study the commonality of composition between Chinese and Western styles, conducting a large number of experimental analyses through combining Western and Chinese compositions. It thus integrates aspects of Chinese and Western culture to discuss and analyse the visual aesthetics brought about by this particular compositional model.
