Abstract
"Material sense" and "mono no aware" are respectively an important concept in the traditional aesthetic consciousness of China and Japan. "Material sense" embodies the Chinese aesthetic concept and philosophical thinking, rational consciousness, and pays attention to the unity of reason and reason. On the basis of China's "material sense" concept, Japan has injected its own cultural temperament to develop a “mono no aware" concept. "Aware" indicates that Japanese aesthetic concepts are related to direct feelings and perceptual knowledge, attaching importance to people's emotional attitudes and highlighting sadness. The commonality between the two is that the emotion is triggered by the image, and then it is empathized with the object to achieve the aesthetic experience of the scene. Material sense and mono no aware are both psychological feelings of natural aesthetic taste, reflections and reactions to emotions. The difference between the two is that the connotation of material sense is greater than the connotation of mono no aware. Material sense is the concentration of various emotions. Although mono no aware also expresses multiple emotions, it is still full of sadness. The focus of mono no aware is placed on the "sorrowful beauty". Compared with material sense, mono no aware is more sentimental, sly and quiet. This article will use the “material sense" and “mono no aware" views as the foothold to analyze the similarities and differences between Chinese and Japanese modern heavy color paintings on their respective aesthetic pursuits.
