Description
Year: 2019
Materials: Ink on hemp paper
Seals
red seal: Su (artist’s last name)
white seal: Jiangang’s everlasting joy
red seal: Mind travels far

Poem:
Holding a stick and following the stream into deep clouds.
Peaks appear after peaks and steep rocks are along the roads.
I want to ask where my friend is living,
But all I see is an empty mountain.

In this painting, streams are flowing quietly in the valley and the towering trees stand steadily. It seems that the movement of the scholar, the little bridge, the flowing stream and flying birds break the tranquility of the valley. It implies that people yearn for freedom to pursue harmonious coexistence between human and nature.
