The Splash-Ink Master I

8 Apr 2003 (Tue)

ACTUALLY, BESIDES COPYING from old masters, Zhang DaQian had also created a new style of Chinese painting which hovers between concrete and abstract, reveling in freedom and unpredictability, as in Vermilion Lotuses in a Fishing Village:

Familiar with Western contemporary art movement, he created a unique splashed-ink and splashed-color style, based on the free, yet masterly texture strokes of his early years.

Most Brilliant Man in the Renaissance?

7 Apr 2003 (Mon)

LEONARDO DA VINCI is probably the most brilliant man in the Renaissance. Attended an exhibition on his work while in Boston, USA, a few years ago. Took a few hours just to go through the exhibits very selectively and quickly. But i enjoyed myself tremendously.

The man’s so prolific and innovative. Besides excelling in drawings, paintings, and sculptures, he was also into mechanical (bridges, windmills) and aeronautical engineering, and even surgical operations!

One of da Vinci’s most famous paintings is Mona Lisa. If you have looked at Mona Lisa’s eyes before, you may have noticed that no matter from which angle you are looking at them, they will appear to gaze back at you.

A theory goes that Da Vinci achieved this effect by painting himself using something like a mirror. ;-)

Chinese Art Values Imitation?

7 Apr 2003 (Mon)

CURIOUSLY, WHILE WESTERN ART traditionally celebrates innovation and new ways of depicting real life, Chinese art seems to value imitation. Chang DaQian, often called the “oriental Picasso”, was famous and acclaimed for his numerous forgeries during his lifetime.

A friend once said something to this effect, “When art has reached its zenith, there’s nothing more to innovate or do except to try to emulate what has already been achieved. This is what has happened to Chinese art – it has been perfected after thousands of years of civilisation.”

Is this true, or just an excuse for not innovating?

Dare I Say the Word?

6 Apr 2003 (Sun)

“I have a terrible need of — dare I say the word? — religion. Then I go out at night to paint the stars…” — Vincent van Gogh, Arles, 1888

Starry Night -- painting image from vangoghgallery.com

I’M JUST AN OCCASIONAL ART-LOVER, ever since an Introduction to Art module during U days. Hope to share views and insights on favorite artists, artworks, and the art itself here. One of my favorite art pieces is Vincent van Gogh’s Starry Night which has been eulogised in a song entitled Vincent.

Van Gogh (1853-1890) was a great genius, utterly ignored during his lifetime. He created hundreds of brilliant paintings; only one was sold then. Killed himself at 37. Read the rest of this entry »
