Liang Jun Yan (2011)
The Chinese minority people, like the Zang of Tibet, live simple lives, much like they have for centuries. Here, we see some older folks, taking in a sunny day, relaxing on the steps in a small town. The cart with bicycle wheels, propped up in the background, is much like those we see throughout China, which, contrary to all of the pictures of modern skyscrapers that one sees in the news, is still behind the rest of the modern world by a century, in many ways. Even in our metropolis of Guangzhou, the main mode of transportation for delivery men is using bicycle carts.

|Of Balloons, original symbolism oil
painting by Tang Hai Guo (2012)
Like soap bubbles falling onto a hot pavement, balloons of a sense of well being and comfort, can burst on the hotbed of life in the fast lane. Might as well enjoy the comfort while it lasts.
Tang Hai Guo uses animals, usually dogs, as symbols of man.

The Cowherd: original oil painting on canvas by Meng Liu (1996)
You might not be aware of this, but, especially in southern China, cows are uncommon: pigs are more prevalent. Even at restaurants beef is precious: it is always served in thin slices, and, unlike restaurants in Europe or America, it is difficult to ever find a beefsteak. Often, when I am out, in the countryside, I will see a lone cow, walking or grazing by the side of the road or being led down the road by a cowherd. Thus, the cowherd, shown in this scene by Meng Liu, must be relatively rich since he owns five cows. Although the scene, from its appearance, could be anywhere, it has typical characteristics of southern China. There is a morning mist, which often covers this area of China. The region is also characterized by mountains, rolling hills, and narrow, secluded valleys, and trees grow tall and slender because it is always warm and wet. Indeed, this painting is a wonderful pictorial commentary on life in the countryside of modern China. It measures 65 cm by 80 cm. Price includes shipping of the dismantled and rolled canvas. Please call or email for further information.

Ripples No. 1, original oil painting by
Jian Wei Shen (2011)
Shen's passion and specialty is water. He likes the challenge of depicting water with it's reflective and refractive properties and it's ripples. The fish are added in, so that he can properly display those properties of water, suing them, as a background.
Shen's paintings are always interesting, and we especially like those in which the water is more disturbed, like this one.
|Dining Table with Nude, original oil
painting by Liang Yi Er (2011)
It could have been, simply, a still life painting of a dining table, set with fruit, flowers, and drinks, but that addition of the subtle nude on the left, literally brings life to the painting.
