Order & Void

Click any image to enlarge
These are paintings by the Chinese artist Cheuk Hiu Kwong. I've noticed that a fairly common technique in Chinese art is to divide the canvas in half and fill one half with detail while the other half is a sort of featureless void.

I wonder if that composition isn't a reflection of a duality of an earthly realm and a more elemental state? Order and the void entwined so to speak. Not sure if I'm being clear at all or just babbling. At any rate, they're interesting paintings and were found via the Blog of an Art Admirer
