Garden, original oil painting
by Jin Ming Li (Li Jin Ming)
by Jin Ming Li (Li Jin Ming)(2007) 花园 布面油画
Li began developing an expressionistic style, in the late 1970ís, after the Cultural Revolution when Deng Xiao Ping created a more free atmosphere, in China. It took him three more decades to create a piece of completely abstract expressionism, but I, for one, am glad that he finally arrived.
Haystack and Cow: original oil painting on canvas by Dapu (Zhang Ai Min) (2008)
Life in the Himalayas can be harsh, but the end of winter is cause for celebration. In this painting, Dapu (Ai Min Zhang) has captured a scene of a cow tied to a log, resting by a mound of hay. It is the end of the winter, so, snow is still melting on the ground. In the background, we see people out and about the old rural town: walking, sitting, conversing, and enjoying the thaw. Dapu is one of the few artists who have taken it upon themselves to chronicle life in the high-mountain regions around Tibet. He tells us that living there is like moving back in time. Life is simple, the air is thin, the weather is harsh, but we appreciate that he, like Gauguin, has chosen to move to a beautiful and pristine area of the world to bring us art from such wonderful settings that most of us would, otherwise, never get a chance to experience. This is one of two haystack paintings in our collection: the other is a smaller painting of haystack and mountain by Meng Liu. Dapu (Zhang Ai Min) is a newer artist who we have recently added to our collection and our gallery.
We have a number of works by Dapu, in the Leona Craig Catalogue Gallery. To view them all, just click on: Dapu Page
|812.||After the Bath, original drawing by Tang
Hai Guo (2012)
as we've noted, repeatedly, caught up in the Cultural Revolution, in the 1960's, the Chinese missed the sexual revolution, and it is only dawning, in China, now. As a result, Chinese artists produce a lot of nudes.
However, as we have also said, time and again, we do see nudes, now and then, that we find interesting enough to include in the gallery collection.
This is a nice, soft, gentle nude of a woman just putting on her rode after her bath.

The Shepherd: original oil painting on canvas by Zhao Qian Xu (2008)
This is another in a series of paintings of the Zang minority people that Xu did with dark backgrounds, like it's night time, yet there is light shining on the subject, which also seem somewhat ethereal, as they blend into the background and have an almost ghost-like appearance.
We always appreciate scenes from the lives of the so-called Chinese minorities, which number in the fifties, as they show what life is really like, in the majority of China, today. The Zang are mostly herders who live on the Tibetan Plateau. We love the style that Xu has used in this series.

|683.||Zhangjiang Seawall, painting by Tan Xuesheng (1984)
Artists from the north of China always comment on how southern Chinese artists know how to paint wet scenes. Here, in the south, we are near to a whole coastline, stretching a thousand miles or more from the China Sea up the east coast to Shantou. The climate is also very wet, with rain coming in over half the months of the year.
