About this site and my philosophy:
Sansui Electric Co. was founded in 1947 in Tokyo Japan.
Started as a transformer manufacturer, Sansui produced various audio products for more than fifty years. In its heydays, somewhere between the late 1970’s and the mid 1980’s, Sansui was well known brand all over the world.
The name “Sansui” means “Mountain and Water.” The implicit appreciation of “Sansui” goes back more than thousand years to the ancient China. That was black ink drawings which depict nature, such as trees, rocks, and streams.
According to Ch’eng Hsi:
Shan shui painting is a kind of painting which goes against the common definition of what a painting is. Shan shui painting refutes color, light and shadow and personal brush work. Shan shui painting is not an open window for the viewer’s eye, it is an object for the viewer’s mind. Shan shui painting is more like a vehicle of philosophy.
Japanese Zen monk named Sesshu who was eager to learn this technique went to China that was in Ming dynasty period. After several years of visit, he came back to Japan and developed his own version of “Sansui” drawing. Sesshu tried to mix his Zen philosophy into the simplicity of “Sansui” drawing. He passed away at the age of 83 in 1503 leaving many master pieces and left fundamental influences on Japanese culture. The meaning of strength and simplicity in black and white is far beyond the level of just drawing techniques. Almost all ancient Japanese culture has been somehow influenced by this philosophy.
