Summer II by Chen Yiching - Contemporary nihonga painting, flowers, nature

2014

About the Item

Summer II is a unique painting by contemporary artist Yiching Chen. The painting is made with mineral pigments and gold leaves on Japanese paper mounted on wood, dimensions are 50 × 20 cm (19.7 × 7.9 in). The artwork is signed, sold framed and comes with a certificate of authenticity. This painting represents a dance of red flowers: a symbol of the celebration of love and passion. It could therefore be the ideal romantic gift to express your feelings to your loved one on Valentine's Day, whether it's your crush, your fiancé or your life partner! Chen Yiching produces floral artworks which delicateness equals the precision required by the Nihonga, a Japanese traditional pictorial technique used for their composition. Nihonga literally means: ‘Japanese’ (nihon), ‘painting’ (ga). It keeps a close poetic relationship with the elements of nature, not only with subjects, but also with the materials used in its technical creation. Although traditional, this technique offers creative possibilities that can be constantly added to, especially with the use of colour. Indeed, this highly meticulous technique firstly requires the creation of the pigment (enogu) from crushed minerals and plants which once mixed with glue (nikawa) and water creates the paint, the raw material of Nihonga. Traditionally applied in several successive layers on mounted paper, this raw material, sometimes augmented by metal leaf, produces an impression of surprising transparency typical of Chen Yiching’s works.

    Urbex is the English acronym for urban exploration and is an activity that consists of searching for and locating abandoned infrastructure with the goal of visiting, photographing and conveying its contents, with particular involvement of methodologies from geography, anthropology, sociology to cultural studies. Her works have been in the past approached to the works of Anselm Kiefer (b. 1945) and Giovanni Battista Piranesi (1720-1770), but in Gullotta's paintings the absence of color makes the spaces particularly ethereal, allowing them to be ideally lifted to new places and to new life. We often speak of a "brain drain," but in this case we are truly happy to be able to say that this is a "return," and an important one: an artist of international caliber who has decided to entrust her return to her homeland to Almach Art...
