Liu Rong Temple, painting  by Jin Ming Li  

Liu Rong Temple, original watercolor painting by Jin Ming Li (1982) 六榕塔 水粉

The tower was built during the Ming Dynasty, and was used as a landmark by ships on the river.  Jin Ming lived in the building, shown in the lower right, which also housed the first well built in Guangzhou by General Nan Yue Wang during the West Han Dynasty.  The house is gone and has been replaced by a science museum.

It is a very delicate painting with pastel colors and a very Chinese feel to it.  The branch of a tree, hanging in the front, is a device that Li has used in a number of paintings.

We offer several works by Jin Ming Lee (Li Jin Ming), in the Leona Craig Art Gallery on-line.  To see our current offerings, just click on: Jin Ming Lee Page.

New Year Travelers, painting by Tang Hai Guo 818. New Year Train Travelers, original multimedia work on paper by Tang Hai Guo

During Chinese New Year, everyone goes back to their hometowns.  As most people don't have cars, most take either buses or trains, and you can see people camping out at train stations in major cites, especially since trains are limited and snow storms in various parts of the county can back things up even more.  Luggage is also a luxury, and you will see people carrying their belongings and gifts in any manner of sacks or rollups: the more lucky use colorfully-striped five-yuan plastic zipper carryalls.

"Boats on Shore": Chinese hand-embroidery 130. Boats on Shore: Xiang Xiu hand embroidered landscape 

This is a really beautifully done embroidered work of art, in the Xiangxiu style of Chinese embroidery.  It depicts two old row boats, sitting in the reeds on the bank of a stream.  The colors are vibrant, reminding us of an Impressionist palette, yet the style is much more true to life than Impressionist style.  The trees in the background are done with  purple leaves, the stream is made of blue and gold, and the boats have the appearance of water-worn, unpainted wood.  The detail work, both on the boats and on the grasses growing on the shores is incredible.  As with most of our offerings in this medium, it comes matted and framed under glass, 62 cm by 52 cm.

Lotus Blossoms: Chinese hand-embroidered scene 124a. Lotus Blossoms: Xiang Xiu hand embroidered & lightly painted landscape

This is one in a series of three embroidered works done by the embroidery studio in Hunan whose work we have included in the catalogue; it is in the Xiangxiu style of Chinese embroidery.  It is done in the older Chinese brush and ink style, which it mimics with embroidery and some minor shading with paint.  The scene depicts lotus blossoms, a classical Chinese artistic theme, with the lotus blossoms sheltered under large lotus leaves.  Also, from the older Chinese style of brush-and-ink is the sparse use of colors other than black and white.  The only colors are the pink and yellow of the blossoms, in stark contrast to the black and white of the rest of the landscape.  There is also some light paintwork, in the central portions, to give the scene more depth.  It is quite a scene, in this style, and it is incredible that it is made from embroidery, not brush and ink.  The delicate flowers show depth and variation of colors, and the contrast with the larger black and white leaves gives it a certain boldness.  A poem is inscribed in older Chinese characters to give it an even more classic Chinese art feel.  This landscape scene comes matted and framed and measures 47.5 cm by 41.5, framed.  It, along with its other two mates, is an especially good choice, if you like the Chinese brush and ink style of painting.

Your shortcomings inspire me: painting by Yi Xing Ma 672. You with Your Shortcomings Inspire Me: original oil painting on canvas by Yi Xing Ma

This is from a suite of fours paintings, all of which we have available, in the Leona Craig Art Gallery.  They are dark, slightly abstract, and definitely surrealistic.  Together, they tell the story of Ma's move, in the mid-1990's, from Hangzhou to Shanghai, putting his thoughts about that time onto canvas.

This is number two, in the series.  It is a mother and son.  In it, Ma pays a backhanded tribute to the motherland, who produced him, so that, even though the motherland is imperfect, even though his art teachers derided his work, while he was in art school, he has still been allowed to grow into the successful artist that he has become.

We offer the entire suite for $240,000.

To see other paintings from the suite and other art by Yi Xing Ma (Ma Yi Xing), please, visit the Yi Xing Ma Page of the Leona Craig Art Gallery on-line.
