“Landscape” is an indispensable art subject matter since ancient times. It is from the ancient times idealism landscape with religious functions, to the impressionism landscape with emphasis on the artistic science and individual emotions, to modernism landscape with fully expression of the social humanities that contribute to the development of the entire art history. New Landscape provides the viewers with a context in depth: communications between human beings and environment, records of individual growth under the development of the society and individual inner spiritual growth. It is an interaction of human activity and relationship with the physical environment that is happening nowadays. It is about the modernization of life, where it brings related changes to the lives and thoughts of the local community; it is the relations of the environment, social, cultural, economy and politics. Shukri and Umi want to “spark” ideas in the context of modernized issues in this New Landscape exhibition.
