'The Poetry of Nature 5' is the fifth solo exhibition in the Kingdom by the master of Chinese fine brushworks from Jiangsu Provincial Art Institute and comprises 25 exquisite paintings _ most of which depict horses in various settings.

Horses are considered auspicious animals in China, representing success and prosperity. The noble beasts are also a symbol of a happy family and signify capability, wisdom and talent.

Among the masterpieces is a painting which depicts a herd of galloping horses with peaceful gazes, strong figures and flying manes in a highly realistic manner.

The portrait of a white stallion with a muscular physique features a fusion of traditional and Western artistic styles. The horse is positioned in the centre of the painting to accentuate its simplicity, vividness and vitality.

Created with gongbi, a meticulous brush technique dating back to the Han Dynasty (206BC-220AD), the collection also includes a series of lifelike paintings of flowers and other animals.

Another painting which depicts a pair of horses _ one black and one white _ recalls the Yin-Yang symbol and can be viewed as an emblem which is commonly used to improve fengshui and safeguard a residence against bad luck.
