Cow Pasture: hand-embroidered landscape   Cows in Pasture: Xiang Xiu hand embroidered landscape

This is a sweet little piece, done in the Xiangxiu style of Chinese hand-embroidery art, but its small size in no way detracts from its loveliness.  It is a pastoral scene with a small copse of tall shade trees dominating the center, much like we have seen on cow farms, in Pennsylvania.  The cows are mostly lying under the trees to get away from the mid-day sun, as is their habit, with a few stragglers wandering around to snack on the lush grass.  What, at first, appears to be a dried stream bed, is actually a tidal stream, and the field is on the shore line with several jutting peaks and stuctures, out at sea and up the coast.  It also adds a splurge of color in the foreground and helps to lead our eyes around.  It actually reminds me of a small oil painting that I have in my collection, back in The States.  It definitely reminds me of my home area, back in the Pennsylvania Dutch country.  In this one, as in some other pictures that we offer in this medium, there is some light painting, also, around the tree tops to help to give them depth.  Moreover, most people who see it, in the gallery, do not even realize that it is embroidery: they think it is an oil painting.  Framed and matted under glass, 36 x 36 cm. [Framed in a beautiful frame, shipped minus the glass].

Citizens seriers #3, painting by Tang Hai Guo 771. Citizens Series, number 3, original oil painting by Tang Hai Guo

All dressed up in her fancy dress, stylish dangling earrings, and a corsage, in her hand, who could resist this dazzling statuesque beauty, who is a model, in real life?  But although she appears beautiful on the outside, on the inside she is full of decay, like the rotting beneath tall grass.

This painting is done in a lighter style of the figurative portraiture techniques that Tang has developed, using strong lines to create bodies and faces.  We love his style, in general, and this painting struck us as a real keeper.

Gold fish symbolizes wealth in Chinese tradition.  The title of the work, in Chinese, refers to building of wealth by having leftovers, savings, at the end of every year. 

The black background serves to enhance the bright orange and golden colors of the fish.

It is the perfect gift for a friend, especially for Chinese New Year.

Gesang Flowers of the Fields: painting by Dapu 641. Gesang Flowers of the Fields: original oil painting on canvas by Dapu (Zhang Ai Min) 2009

This is an at-home family portrait of the Zang nomad sheep and cattle herders who roam the Tibetan Plateau and of whose life Dapu has painted a number of paintings.  The Gesang flower is a hardy flower that grows on the Tibetan Plateau and can withstand the howling winds and heavy downpours.  This sizable painting has been chosen for a book celebrating the 60 year anniversary of the Peoples Republic of China and is being considered for acceptance into this year's (2009) national art competition (depends on not only talent but also guanxi).

With their home, in the background, a cow grazing, in between, and herds of cattle and sheep, off in the distance, and hawks soaring in the sky, it is a beautiful piece of social commentary about the simple lifestyle on the Tibetan Plateau, today.  Although the older women are dressed in traditional clothing and jewelry, the family motorcycle and the dress of the children shows that the modern world is gradually mixing into their lives.  Yet the realistic style shows the carefree and happy demeanor of these gentle peoples who follow their herds around the plateau: the flowers of the fields of the north side of the Himalayas.

We have seen other paintings of beautiful girls from the area, but we like this one so much more for its honest and beautiful portrait of the real people who live in and off the land.
