decision (liking-disliking/pleasure-danger), arriving before the consciousness of it; when the activity of the prefrontal cortex enables us to block it at the last moment, often by the inference of ratio. Analogies and experience educate our intuition in search for a hierarchy of probability. Neural populations compete against each other for dominance by reduction and abstraction. The selection of some of the parameters of those neural cues at a higher level of abstraction by integration and elimination is necessary to upgrade them to a higher level in the cortex. Finally they reach a stable form: a stabilized ambiguity that pops up in the mind as an expression of our opinion, moderated by all the aspects of our identity. Art can be seen as ‘bad’ because it fails to satisfy the viewer’s expectation. Therefore, the awareness of its quality is essential to the personal art experience, but its validation is based upon a subjective judgment, first by our selves and then by the others. The personal arousal artful beauty procures, is experienced in different grades linked to the gradation of perceived ‘artness’ of the work of art, hierarchized by intensity and context, in function of the beholder’s self-perception and his beliefs. Therefore, each in his own subjective way, experiences high art and low art, kitsch, fashion differently. This implicates a hierarchy creating inequality. Art is not ‘something but’ and quality is not ‘a zero sum game’. This inequality does not establish itself at the expense of other art forms, since our artful expectations are infinite in their wealth and diversity. Quality perception in art does not create injustice or social and psychological injustice. Thechun (°1920), mostly working in Paris are the pioneers of the Chinese version of Western abstraction, integrated in the Chinese calligraphic tradition. Zhang Xiaogang (°1958) showcased the amnesia of humans facing the past and their future, reflecting the overall changes of the Chinese society. Zeng Fanzhi (°1964) revisits western themes retuned by masked Chinese. Wang Guangyi (°1957) revisits the propaganda of the Cultural (a-cultural?) Revolution in an ironic way. Cai Guo-Qiang (°1957) celebrates the great Chinese pyrotechnical tradition with gunpowder paintings on paper. He Wenjuee’s movie paintings retrieve memories of the past in a novel way. Popular culture globalizes cultural elements into mass culture for the ultra-rich, mixing tradition and modernity. The deconstruction of conventional expressions created existential reflections, far away from the Confucianist way of thinking. An interesting multi-cultural mix, of which the Belgian connoisseur baron Guy Ullens de Schooten was one of the first enthusiasts. China, as is Chinese art today is at a new beginning of its history and feels confident in its achievements. The art experience is continuously refined by a state of non-systematic intuitive doubt, challenging ratio, believes and ideology. This helps us to imagine who we are in relation to the world in a different way, by the attribution of meaning to our emotions, thus becoming sentiments. This reduces our consciousness towards worldly stimuli for an instant. Philosophy and psychology reveal some aspects of this specific arousal, other than its physiology studied by neuroscience. Together, they create a better world. How do Chinese artists deal with this? 188 Soviet style painting dominated China’s regime’s aesthetic preferences under Mao’s regime. Things changed after 1994. In the last decades Chen Yifei is the undisputed master of the Romantic-Realism movement. Chen Danqing and Liu Duoling incorporate the influence of their predecessors in their personal style.
