Through the process of trial, Xue Feng deconstructed all the landscapes of Chinese traditional paintings, making them abstractive, what left on the canvas only the simplest strokes. The works of Xue Feng are infectious, conveying his state of mind when he was creating.
The works of Yuan Yuan avoid human, while the human living trace is everywhere. Two paintings exhibited on the show integrate imagination and reality, with texture of oil, presenting all details of scenes, leading people to find out the trace of time.
The contraction and similarity are everywhere in Yang Yongliang’s works. The artist implements digital technology to merge the construction of urban cities to the Chinese traditional landscapes paintings. Modern and traditional civilizations share the same limitation coming from themselves. In the series of “silent village”, two threats are hidden by the scene that looked harmonious. All these are intended to awake the thinking of today’s society.
The inspiration of “Central Park” series is from Zhao Xuebing’s living experience in Paris and New York. He uses the delicate strokes to paint the scenes of miscellaneous branches and trees in the heart of the Central Park as he remembered. The massive cool color makes the picture in a peaceful atmosphere, however, those light and shadow appear like a dream, present the messy thoughts of the artist.
Influenced by his own life and education experience, Zhu Xinyu, who from province of Liaoning with its deserted factories and large expanses of empty terrains, is skilled in painting deserted landscapes. Intensive color and subtle tones create the both bitter and cold atmosphere, like what the French artist Gustave Courbet painted, what is going through the painting is just time.
