Lot Essay

"Fan Kuan has said that 'learning from nature is better than learning from man, and the human heart is an ever greater source for learning than nature." It is artist's imagination, his sensibility, and his inner character that are revealed on the canvas. This is where the concepts behind Chinese painting and abstract painting very neatly come together.“ – Chu Teh-Chun
“It is not people who grind ink, but it is ink that wears people down.“ – Chu Teh-Chun
