The Opposite Side of Monet’s Garden
Is that drawing? Is that light or shadow? That is just the colour paste!
Perhaps out of misapprehension, people flock to see Monet’s Waterlilies without knowing why, and, blindsided by its superficial lights and shadows, its colours, and its accolades, end up missing The Opposite Side of the Monet’s Garden in the process. Photography is, in this regard, direct and upfront, but it can also leave us with a certain impression that may season reality with poetry.
那是畫嗎？ 那是光還是影？ 那只是顏料！
