    From a Chinese perspective, emptiness is not vague or representing anything lacking — as the Western understanding of this concept suggests. Faced with Shan Fan’s bamboo paintings, one comprehends the effect of the white surface as a free space and potential for development with one’s own eyes. It is a wisdom deeply rooted in Chinese thought that the relationship between emptiness and fullness is not antagonistic but a mutual conditionality.
