Introduction

It is said that understanding Zen is like appreciating tea as Zen consists of varying flavours as well. And this applies to painting too. Since Tian Xutong’s deviation from using colours abstractly thin black and white lines in 2000, he has been exploring how to express the meaning and his interest in Zen. When it comes to Zen, people tend to think of it as consisting of lofty works with profound meaning, mysterious and difficult to understand and that its meanings can be found everywhere. However, Zen is neither faith nor religion, or a quick solution to any problem. It is, in fact, a kind of mental state and contains such clear wisdom in which one ‘sees colours amongst distant mountains and hears no sound when beside a flowing stream’, and ‘enters the woods without disturbing the grass or the waters without causing any wave’.
