Sparrow Flower by Jin Ming Li  

Sparrow Flower, oil painting on canvas  by Jin Ming Li (2009) 麻雀花  油画 

麻雀花是一种奇特的花朵,形似麻雀,每年清明前后开花。传说中有位叫李铁怪的英雄,他在环游世界时,经过一处农田,看见成群的麻雀在吃庄稼,当地老百姓都饥饿地瘦骨如柴,于是他为了拯救农民,把麻雀通通变成了树藤上的花。

这是李金明到河源桂山森林写生时画的,他喜欢花卉生长在原生态的大自然中的魅力。而用油画来画麻雀花,李金明恐怕是第一个。

The sparrow flower opens downward, and from a distance it appears as birds clinging to a vine.  Legend says that one of the Eight Immortals, Tieguai Li, saw a flock of sparrows destroying crops, and he turned them into flowers on a vine to keep them from eating the crops and leaving the people hungry.

Jin Ming Li heard that this flower grows in Heyuan’s Guishan forest, west of Guangzhou.  He likes to painting things in their natural environment, so, he went there looking to paint it. He believes that he is the first artist to paint an oil painting of this very precious and rare Guangdong flower.

Landscape, drawing by Tang Hai Guo    Landscape, original mixed media work on paper by Tang Hai Guo 

This year Tang has done a lot of different things, beginning with his collage of shameful events, in China, titled Hotbed, to a few still lifes and landscapes in mixed media on paper. 

We liked this particular landscape with its bright colors and its unusual style.  We also like the snow and miss it very much, living in South China.

Shanbei Farmer II, painting by Zhao Qian Xu 707. Old Farmer in Shanbei II: original oil painting on canvas by Zhao Qian Xu (2006)

Art has its roots in social commentary: that's what the cave drawings from 30,000 years ago were all about.  Today, in China, social commentary takes on a number of forms.  There is political art, which is, sometimes, creative; sometimes, strictly commercial.  There are a lot of paintings of girls because the sexual revolution of the 1960's was delayed by the Cultural revolution and is only occuring now.  The final form is true social commentary on the way people actually live, in China, today, as opposed to all the modern life scenes that China shows us on TV.

This latter category gives us true peeks into real life, in China, not that of the glossy newsreels, and I appreciate it, personally, most of all, for I have lived in and traveled the backroads of China for the last five years, and this is what I see.

This is a portrait, of a simple farmer from Shanbei, in the north, one of two different portraits that Xu made of this man.  It shows a rugged man with his simple native dress, and, as usual, Xu has done an excellent job at the art of portraiture, this time, in a more realistic style.

Paper airplane, painting by Tang Haiguo 763. Paper Airplane, original oil painting by Tang Haiguo

Paper airplanes are a fond part of childhood: they were fun and easy to make and cost no money. These day, it seems that the era of kids making paper airplanes is past.

Paper airplanes follow a parbolic path: they will pass by you just once.  Like ones youth, it will pass by quickly and only once, never to return again. 

A voice inside ones head will say: it's time to get married.  Most modern Chinese girls fear that if they do not marry by the time they are in their mid-twenties, they will never find a husband because the men want young wives.  Yet, some will hesitate because they have not achieved success or other personal goals; they will say: wait.  This is the reason that, today, in China, there are so many so-called leftover girls.
