by
9/8/16 Posted 9/13/16

The ancient culture in nowadays Sichuan Province, China was vastly different from those originated in the Yellow River region, the mainstream Chinese culture as we know it. Jinsha (Archaeology) Site Museum in Chengdu, China, featured many mysterious artifacts resembled those we would see in Sci-Fi movies. The most treasurable item was a gold foil wheel of Sun Birds - four cutout mythical birds flying around a cutout swirling wheel, spilling flares just like the sun. Perhaps, it was... [more]

“Guilt is not the curse of the human – the body is.”

8/29/16 Posted 8/29/16

“Guilt is not the curse of the human – the body is.” These words, uttered in 1966, characterized a paradigm shift. These words, especially for women, formed the nucleus of the emergence and omnipotence of sin. As women came into existence, they became the synonym of sin and their bodies the essence of sin. It is not an accident that the woman’s body, rather than the man’s, was framed as sin. Forever, well, ever since forever existed, the man’s body was epitom... [more]

My Favorite Paintings at Xu Beihong Museum in Beijing  
by
8/29/16 Posted 9/1/16

Xu Beihong (1895-1953) was a renown Chinese artist, who was uniquely accomplished in both western oil paintings and traditional Chinese paintings. The museum bears his name, Xu Beihong Museum in Beijing had many of fine representations of his works. One of his most famous oil painting was a portrait titled "Sound of Flute", which, though somewhat veered towards sentimentality, was redeemed by the heroine's shagginess, which transported her to the purer and more primitive and private world. Rather than... [more]

by
8/28/16 Posted 8/28/16

by Danny Castillones Sillada “You can enjoy a grander sight, / By climbing to a greater height.” ~ Wang Zhihuan, On The Stork Tower Merced, California — One does not only see the flowing or cascading waters but also imagine their origins, how they murmur, drift, and converge in a particular event in space and time, as if the artist had painted hundreds of miles of a meandering river, the waters explode with vivacity on the white plane, capturing their sensuous details in a single pictorial nar...

My Favorite Paintings at National Art Museum of China, Beijing  
by
8/26/16 Posted 8/30/16

The National Art Museum of China in Beijing has interesting oil painting collections, but when I visited it many years ago, the only oil paintings on display were a group of portraits of political and bigness bigwigs, uniformly done in the quite pompous and imperial fashion, therefore the only works worth seeing were some Chinese paintings and here are a couple of such samples. The 1960 landscape "Xiling Gorge" by FU Baoshi was a bold presentation of an often painted subject - one of the renown... [more]

My Featured Painting: Birches  
by
8/23/16 Posted 8/23/16

Nurtured by many Russian novels while growing up, I developed a special feeling towards the omnipresent birches, which not only aptly set the scenes and evoke the particular melancholy especially associated with Russia and Russian people, and finally, I made effort in 2006 to try to capture such feelings with a painting titled Birches, which is currently showing at the McGuire Real Estate gallery in Berkeley as part of the “Crowded by Beauty” exhibit. I love the slender shapes of the... [more]

My Favorite Paintings at Liaoning Provincial Museum, Shenyang, China  
by
8/19/16 Posted 8/26/16

The main museum in my hometown, Manchurian city Shenyang, Liaoning Provincial Museum, boasted some magnificent artifacts and Chinese paintings, due to the fact that the last imperial dynasty was originated from Manchuria, and had kept a rich trove of art treasures in Shenyang, especially during and after World War II, when Manchu elites retreated back to northeastern China. Like many cities in China, Shenyang has experienced rapid expansion in the last decade or so, resulting in the move of it... [more]

To deal with art and approaching it are the first basic steps that every artist in his research must address. To approach the various forms of artistic expression and to bring it into line for us, may often be a difficult but necessary challenge to us, when we place ourselves in front of an collective exhibition, in which different artists and their different visual languages interact, feel and live art together. The artwork reflects the individual expression of a general feeling, is influence... [more]

8/10/16 Posted 8/20/16

Pinacoteca Nazionale (National Gallery) di Ferrara, also known as Palazzo dei Diamanti, named for its rusticated façade of diamond spikes, impressed with effortless elegance of the building and its collections. The first striking piece greeted visitors was an "Assunzione di Santa Maria Maddalena" by Maestro della Maddalena Assunta. The highly stylized landscape was an idealized world, where animals, plants, and humans mingled together in harmony. The low vantage point and the r... [more]
