         Hello frends! I am an artist. My roots take place in St.Petersburg, which has great architecture, culture and history that influenced me once and forever.

I seek out look for new shapes and images within my themes using different materials, but my favorite is glass for its plasticity and abi... [more]

Europe's refugee crisis has reached political and humanitarian extremes this year, with an unprecedented number of asylum seekers—largely fleeing conflicts in Africa and the Middle East—risking their lives crossing the Mediterranean. Across the continent a political and social atmosphere fueled by racism, xenophobia, fiscal conservatism, and austerity has given rise to a radical disconnect between many Europeans and their southern neighbors: Greek Isle holidaymakers have been heard...

Cd008 宿墨之韵味 The Charm of Su-Ink  
by
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...

中国当代艺术的坎坷 陈源初  
by
7/27/15 Posted 7/27/15

中国当代艺术的坎坷 陈源初 中国艺术界在经济的改革开放环境下所获得的最大的成就,就是冲破了官方长期抱住不放的现实主义,借鉴于西方的现当代艺术成果,试验和创造了中国初具规模的当代艺术。官方坚强地坚持现实主义主要原因是政治的因素,西方大都数国家对新中国的成立之初持反对态度,苏联想把中国纳入苏维埃大家庭系统内,当然支持新中国。当时苏联是中国的楷模,是与中国有着兄弟般牢不可破的友谊。不久中国就发现苏联老大哥的无私援助并不是无私的,牢不可破的友谊不久就因各自的利益破了,中国与苏联很快就分道扬镳。中国对于共产国际的美好憧憬破灭,不过艺术上却仍然固执地坚持现实主义。官方的这种顽强坚持的原因,是因为领导者政治斗争太忙对艺术的无暇顾及和中国对西方的封锁,以前在并不深入了解苏联的情况并且与西方比较作深入的调查研究下以为苏联一切都是好的,同时在对西方并无了解的情况下却断言一切都是坏的。矛盾的是,马克思主义,社会主义和共产主义概念也是西方来的。不得不佩服苏联和中国共产党的伟大之处在于,共产主义这种在全世界并无历史实践,也没有经过任何局部试验而成功过的一个哲学家的纸上理想,被英明地认定是放之四海而皆准的真理,立即全面不顾及人民和国家所冒的任何风险推广到整个东欧和中国,强行执行并波及亚洲。 通过几十年的艰辛奋斗,每一个伟大的中苏东欧共产党,顽强领导勤劳的人民经过无数的努力,其结果是灾难深重,国民经济远远落后于万恶的日薄西山的资本主义的国家和地区,最明显的对比是东西德和南北韩。由于经济的崩溃,人民生活的疾苦,和思想封闭使得人民产生巨大的不满,如再继续在崎岖的小道上不畏劳苦攀登的话必将导致政权动摇。最后苏联在政治经济瘫痪下解体,东欧国家政治经济全面放弃社会主义和共产主义的美妙理想而倒向资本主义。然而,中...

Posted 7/27/15

The number of tourists pouring into Amsterdam increases steadily every year. Obviously Madame Tussauds, the Anne Frank House and—of course—the red light district are popular destinations, but in the last decade or so museums have become a serious pull-factor. Number one on the list is the Rijksmuseum, welcoming more than 2.4 million visitors in 2014 and on track to break that record this year. For the exhibition Late Rembrandt alone half a million tickets were sold. Besides happy faces... [more]
