The traditional society usually prefers to empower the simple tool with multifunctional elements.For example, the Chinese brush has been active in Oriental writing and painting systems for more than thousand years.In addition to Chinese brushes, some simple but efficient tools, such as chopstick and acupuncture, are still commonly applied in the realms of modern catering and medical care.Based on the above ideas of efficient tools, it would be interesting to investigate the significance of the extension of body as part of such a multifunctional realm. The research inspiration is also to understand how to apply simple tools with basic technology in different artistic missions, such as painting, moulding or printing.
In traditional Oriental paintings, black ink is commonly applied in visualizing all the objects in this external world. According to ancient aesthetics of Zen, the effects of various colours are not different from illusion. In order to purify our subject with the property of art, simple colours, such as black, which actually retains five characters: dark, bright, dry, wet, burned, could be used to represent all the characters of composite colours in the application of painting. The interaction between Ying (Black) and Yang (White) also is significant in the presentation of Oriental Art. The applicationand the presentation of the black shade is given significance in discussion because this would be useful to avoid any distractionscaused by the discussion of colours and it will help me to focus on the core concern of my research.The tradition of simple colours,fascinates me in Doctorate practice of art.
