On the edge : contemporary Chinese artists encounter the West by Britta Erickson( Book )

10 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The works in On the Edge represent the reactions of leading Chinese artists to encounters with the West. Some are contemplative musings on the space that opens up when one culture is observed from the vantage point of another. Others are more confrontational comments on Western dominance in the process of globalization. Some take strategic advantage of an outsider position. Each is symptomatic or expressive of the relationship between China and the West

The enduring passion for ink : a series on contemporary ink painters( Visual )

1 edition published in 2016 in Chinese and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Enduring Passion for Ink: A Project on Contemporary Ink Painters (or the "Project") is a proposed exhibition, book, and film series designed to introduce the viewing public to the burgeoning field of contemporary ink painting in China today. The key to the exhibition lies in a series of documentary films, one for each featured artist, to be shown adjacent to that artist's works. The films will address the fundamental artistic choices confronting the ink artist: Why did s/he choose ink as a medium? How is ink's expressive range distinct from that of other artistic media? How does the artist go about creating an ink work? How does the artist approach issues such as tradition, creative innovation, and personal expression? Each film will feature the artist addressing these questions and show him or her at work in the studio in the process of creating a work of art. Through time-lapsed photography, the film will also show that same painting's evolution from start to finish. If deemed a success by the artist, the painting captured on film will be included in the exhibition ... Because of the real-time performance aspect of setting ink into an absorbent ground, film is a particularly fitting means to not only demystify the ideational process of the artist but to enthrall the viewer in the physical act of painting with ink. In this respect, The Enduring Passion for Ink: A Project on Contemporary Ink Painters is absolutely unique; as a means to re-introduce this ancient art language to international audiences today, it is nothing less than essential
Modern ink : the art of Qi Baishi( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Born into a poor farming family and coming of age during China's century of civil strife, Qi Baishi transformed the elite brush art of China's literati scholars into a universal art form appreciated by people of all social backgrounds. His distinctly modern art language breaks through class and cultural barriers through use of expressive "carved" brushwork, juxtaposition of vibrant colours against deep and rich ink tones, poetic economy in form and composition, and choice of emotionally resonant subject matter. For these reasons, Qi Baishi's art is the ideal gateway through which art lovers of any class or culture can learn about the millenia-old tradition of Chinese brush painting. A selection of Qi Baishi's seal carving - the art of the "iron brush"--Links his origins as an artisan carver to his life as China's most celebrated calligrapher, poet and painter. The scholarly discipline calligraphy then forms the basis for our understanding Qi Baishi's distinctive carved brushwork. Published in association with Marquand Books and the Mozhai Foundation

Modern ink : the art of Xugu( Book )

4 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The enigmatic Chinese monk-painter Xugu (1823-1896), with his daring brush techniques and implicit expression of spiritual insight, stands out among notable innovators in the late Qing period. Despite the political upheaval and cultural decay of his day, he tapped the creative spring of Chan (Zen) Buddhism to develop a highly personal and modern visual language within the calligraphic idiom of traditional scholars' art. His portraits and landscapes, along with his depictions of flowers, fruits, and animals, convey quiet elegance, sensitivity, ethereality - and at times humor - even as they surprise with their unconventionality and tendency toward abstraction. This monograph, illustrated in full color, examines seventeen paintings and one rare work of calligraphy by this extraordinary artist in the context of his life and stylistic development. The inclusion of a portrait by two of his close associates provides perspective on the enduring impact of Xugu's vital breakthroughs on the burgeoning art center of nineteenth-century Shanghai and beyond."--Publisher's website
The richness of life : the personal photographs of contemporary Chinese artist Liu Xiaodong : 1984-2006 by Xiaodong Liu( Book )

Modern ink( Book )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wrenched by warfare and famine from the quiet life of a small-town scholar to the fast-growing treaty port of Shanghai, Wu Changshi (1844-1927) rose to the forefront of the jinshi, or "epigraphic," movement in calligraphy and painting. His inventive method of adapting the rugged strength of ancient engraved texts to his own brushwork reinvigorated Chinese art through a reconnection with its earliest roots. In bold xieyi or free-style flower-and-bird scenes and landscapes, he fully integrated the four disciplines of painting, calligraphy, poetry, and seal carving. This volume presents outstanding examples of this master's calligraphy and paintings, illustrated in full color, along with scholarly discussions of his important contribution to the development of ink painting in the modern world. -- from Amazon.com

Patronage and production in the Nineteenth-Century Shanghai Region : Ren Xiong (1823-1857) and his sponsors by Britta Erickson( )

4 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

So little work has been done on nineteenth-century Chinese art that there remains a need for an assemblage of the facts, which then can provide a framework on which to graft the more focused studies. In this dissertation I synthesize a background for the further study of Ren Xiong, and reproduce primary source material, much of which is inaccessible due to location. Having established a general understanding of Ren Xiong's life and works, I then examine two of the artist's greatest works in depth, to illuminate the respective artist-patron relationships out of which they grew. The study of these paintings and the circumstances surrounding their creation imparts to us some sense of the complex web of interrelationships tying together members of the Jiangnan cultural world during the second half of the nineteenth century
