My Favorite Painting & Sculptures in Il Redentore, Venezia  
8/27/15 Posted 9/19/15

Il Chiesa del Santissimo Redentore (Church of the Most Holy Redeemer) is located on a small island facing Venice across a lagoon, and a short trip by boat brought me to see some of its eclectic artworks. My favorite painting in the church was Baptism of Christ by Veronese. This painting did not present a panoramic scene of the event; rather, it brought viewers to the close proximity of the main characters in the drama -- Jesus and John the Baptist, presented as virile young men, vigorous and poi...

Cd008 宿墨之韵味 The Charm of Su-Ink  
7/28/15 Posted 7/28/15

宿墨之韵味 浅释: 宿墨之韵味是宿墨派的师祖,摩诘大师用中国传统的大泼墨法,大胆地运用宿墨的魅力,把个宿墨的韵和味发挥到淋漓尽至,大师他运用许多他自创的手法,使这滴滴宿墨瞬间神奇地绽开,栩栩如生,形态各异,或鬆或急,浓淡不一,宛如墨菊,至美至酷。而摩诘大师却整天沉醉于,这宿墨的韵和味之间,旁若无人,浑然不知我的存在。而我也被这神奇的创作方式而迷惑。 你有看过这样的作品吗?肯定没有,它是不能高仿的。这是第一个独一无二,也是第一幅。除了摩诘大师,目前是没有人能画的,请仔细品味。 第二个独一无二,是它是使用了大师自己独创的變色颜料,它能随周围的即时大气湿度,由色样0(粉红色)变到色样7,鲜天蓝色,等8个 色阶变化。与变色龍一样。注:请看变色龍浅释:* 或许你会思索,摩诘大师为什麽放“宿墨之韵味”去论争而不放“变色龍”,因为“宿墨之韵味”是有二个独一无二在这世界,而“变色龍“仅一个独一无二。 *宿墨:在中国画的六法画论中说:宿墨是不可用的!何为宿墨。就是墨研好后,过了夜的墨水,特别是夏天,经发酵了就不能用,用则化。就因为中国画的六法论是中国传统的经典论文。所以以往宿墨是禁用的,人们都不敢用宿墨。 ** The Charm of Su-Ink: The charm of Su-ink is Su-ink Sectarian of Teacher-Zu, Mo-Jie Wang master with traditional Chinese set aside a large Splash method ink, boldly use the charm of Su-ink , the Su-ink rhyme and taste play to...

Plastic Paralysis at Studio Bongiorno  
7/10/15 Posted 7/10/15

I had a rude awakening this last April when Robin Lysne asked me to participate in the June/July exhibit "Plastic Paralysis" at Studio Bongiorno in Santa Clara, CA. I had no idea that plastic was and is creating a huge environmental disaster: huge funnel like gyres larger than the state of Texas made of floating plastic debris in all of the world's major oceans. As a result, plastic has invaded the food chain in both minute and/or large form in most all fish and sea mammals. To me what hit home was se... [more]
