The flight broke out of the clouds into troposphere where storm and thunder were. It was when the flash of light from the lightning, these bizarre clouds from above the troposphere came into Po-Yuan’s sight and inspired him ten years after were he began this series--Clouds. "Cloud" in Chinese landscape painting is often view as “absent”. which is commonly known as "Leaving White” where artist applies no ink. This method is quite “Internal displayed”. However, Po-Yuan’s “Cloud” is often set on a high angle perspective and he tries to break away from binary opposition concepts of simply recognizing them as clouds or not. Therefore he applies paints by returning to their essence of true rendering, and that can lead to a more potential development in subjects such as clouds and concepts of traditional oil mediums.
