Metamorphosis 9, painting by Tang Hai Guo 738. Metamorphosis 9, original figurative oil painting portrait by Tang Hai Guo

In his metamorphosis series, Tang uses the boldest, most colorful lines.  We liked the sneer on this ones face, the colors, and the fanciful clothing.

In Tang's metamorphosis series, he is pointing to the changes that people undergo because of materialism and greed, which are big problems in modern Chinese society.  Just like a hanger will change its shape when too much weight is hung on it, people will change with the stress that the current society puts on them to earn enough money to live like normal people, in the rest of the world.

Having gone through the hardships of the great famine of half a century ago and the ravages of the cultural revolution of Mao, the society has been left with collective fear of not having enough and the envy of those who have accumulated so much since those times.  Those things have caused greed to run rampant, but greed changes a person on both the inside and the outside.

Rabbit no. 1, painting by Tang Hai Guo 744. Rabbit No. 1, original oil painting by Tang Hai Guo

The animals in Tang Hai Guo's animal series always have great expressions and attitude, of one form or another, on their faces, making them seem much more intelligent than the average animal.  This bunny has a tentative, yet knowing, look on his face.

Another feature of many of the paintings in this series is the cityscape in the far background.

Where this water comes from, Tang Haiguo   Wonder Where This Water Comes From, original oil painting by Tang Hai Guo

If you think this is like dog's playing poker, you're wrong.  The title of the painting, as the sign on the fountain asks, is: wonder where this water comes from.  A question that even a dog has to ask before taking a sip of any water, in modern China.  It is certainly a brilliant work from Tang's animal portrait series.
