After a lot of good food and wine, inhibitions vanish, and desire sets in. The whole environment becomes more attractive. With that come-hither look in her eyes, who can resist?

Holland Windmill: original oil painting on canvas by Meng Liu
Chinese art has been merging with Western art for several centuries, especially, in the last hundred years. Thos fathers of contemporary Chinese oil paintings from the early 1900's did not just read about Western painting techniques but went abroad to learn about Western art and, also, to experience the culture. Of course, during the rein of Chairman Mao, no one was allowed to leave the country, and those who had been abroad were always suspect. Thus, we particularly enjoy seeing art done by Chinese artists about their current experiences outside of China.
This scene from a small village in the Netherlands with its windmill, in the background, is a nice part of Meng Liu's personal log of his travels abroad.

Tibetan Man: original oil painting on canvas by Feng Wu Sui (2007)
Art, for us, is more enjoyable when it depicts reality instead of a sugar-coated version of the world. We have included several portraits by Feng Wu Sui, in our gallery, and this is one of our favorites. It shows an old Tibetan man from the Zang minority. Although his hair is white and messy, his face shows alertness, peace, and a bit of mirth. He might be up in years, but he is, by no means, what you imagine when you think of old man. He might not fit the classical definition of handsome, but his ruddy rugged looks, his proud nose, his twinkling eyes, and his chiseled features make his face a very pleasant face to look at. You can see from his face that, although life, in Tibet, might not be easy with the thin air, the cold weather, and the isolation, it must be a happy and healthful life.
Feng Wu Sui displays excellent brush technique in his portrait paintings of both faces and full bodies. He has done an exceptional job in capturing the spirit of this Tibetan man in this simple but beautiful portrait, and we just love it.
We have several works by Feng Wu Sui (Sui Feng Wu), in the Leona Craig Art Gallery. To see them all, click on: Feng Wu Sui Page.
|866.||Sentient Beings no. 2,
original abstract oil painting by Zhang Zhen Jiang (2010)
In the fiery start of the universe, you, me, us, all living things have no identity, no individuality. We are ageless and only one small phase of a mad and freaky eternal process.
The painting is filled with heads of people in various levels of abstraction. We liked it for its theme, its colors, and its style.

Girl Playing Guitar: original oil painting on canvas by Zhao Qian Xu
Although guitars are not a typical Chinese instrument, stringed instruments have been part of Chinese culture for centuries. In fact, we see Chinese string instrument quartet concerts, in the little park, in our neighborhood, every Sunday. In addition, since China has opened up to the rest of the world, over the last several decades, many ytoung people, now, aspire to become rock stars.
This portrait is typical of Xu Zhao Qian's more loose abstract style, a style that he prefers over precise realism. The pastel colors make it pleasant to the eye, and the more abstract presentation, especially, in the background gives it a softness, echoing the soft, girlishness of the subject. It is a simply wonderful portrait.

oil painting by Jianwei Shen 2008
In this painting, Shen deals with bubbles and ripples. Both of these phenomena distort light in sharp turns and includes reflection and refraction, making it a technically intricate work, and, once again, Shen has done a fine job.
