||Jacques Rancière stressed “playful hallucinations” as a guiding code for narrative-painting expression, whereas Maurice Merleau-Ponty stressed the description of “dehiscence” and “instantaneous glimpse of movement” from the subject matters through one’s “autofigurative sentiments”. Are there any contradictions between “playful hallucinations” and “autofigurative sentiments”? There is a common ground for both notions which is “To portray the essence of the subject matter based on a sentimental observation on its form” avocation by Gu Kaizhi from the Eastern Jin Dynasty. No matter for manifesting “imaginations” or “eyes from the mind” for creating paintings, Gu Kaizhi’s avocation implies that we should convey the humorous sentiments of the subject matters based on our individual perceptional experiences.
