Artwork Description

Watercolour on cardboard

Signed on the front.

Hi, I'm Jade Li. Thank you for stopping at my Art. I create Inspirational Oriental Art, that is Influenced by Ancient & Modern Art Techniques and Concepts.

Material & Energy:
special rice paper, Chinese ink, natural mineral colour. Technique: meticulous painting/泼墨写意。
All of the materials I use are very specially made and full of good energy. The brush painting technique is highly unique, I paint everything with positive Qi (气).

Spirit of this painting :

The work is titled #Hello my old friend [老友laoyou]
collection of inspirational brush paintings done with traditional water ink. The little kitty is called Senpai (Yeah, a Japanese name). He used to be our old housemate. I guess every cat has a colourful inner world especially when they are asleep, so I was so excited to paint our little "daydreamer" with peonies. The perfect bloom of peonies symbolises wealthy, auspicious, honour and graceful in Chinese art for centuries. Frida Kahlo ever said, “I paint flowers, so they will not die”. It is such a pleasant time for me to capture the peak of their beauty with my hands.

A talk with ONLY you :
There is a unique way for everyone to connect with mother nature and this is my way. I see every painting process as a precious meditation and time journey to search philosophy for life. It is motivational to have a conversation with you who are looking at this artwork now. Never forget how special you are. People are too busy to remember it is ok to slow down and enjoy the view.

This world inspires me:
Creating lucid dream feelings, I was influenced by ancient techniques and modern concepts across countries. It is my honour to be born in a country with a thick and deep cultural background. It gives me the chance to look back to search for inspiration. I was always fascinated by the philosophical concept of BALANCE. Finding the balance between the softness of special rice paper and the hardness of brush is the true meaning of creation. And I believe that it is the key to a home full of happiness. Studying at Swinburne University also inspires me to open my mind, to absorb new ideas and to respect diverse cultures.

It is my honour to invite you to explore a unique spiritual inner world with me through the view of this blooming dream.

“Yellow is a small wheel of cheddar cheese. Permeating a musty odor out of the baker’s shop. Yellow is a thousand paper cranes, floating down a slow, mellow river. Yellow is the round circle of the moon, the light that stays through the coldest night.” – Anisha Datta

Touch has power to speak without saying anything. It is a language we communicate with the one we love.
