A post in reference to Yang Yongliang’s statement at White Rabbit:

“A longtime student and devotee of shanshui, or landscape painting, Yang Yongliang has watched in dismay as a China hell-bent on modernization tosses its traditions on the scrap heap. But there is no way to stop this 21st-century anti-cultural revolution, he says—older art forms must keep up with the changing times or fade away. Yang Yongliang’s approach to saving shanshui is based on retaining its inner essence while updating its subjects and media… They also parallel the ‘despair and sadness’ Yang Yongliang feels when he contemplates what is being lost as Shanghai erupts into the 21st century.” —Twisted Sifter
