王昱《东庄论画》：“学画者，先贵立品。立品之人， 笔墨外自有一种正大光明之概；否则，画 虽可观，却有一种不正之气隐跃毫端。 文如其人，画亦有然。”
“Be righteous before being an artist”, One of the Chinese most famous landscape painting artists,Yu Wang, in mid 17th century of the Qing Dynasty wrote in his book “Dong Zhuang on Painting”, that “An artist, as a most powerful silent messenger throughout history, delivers to the world not only an art work, but also an optimistic and positive attitude. The art work mirrors the painter”.
“You are what you write and draw”. It can’t be more true to describe Ms. Jing Xu, a famous Canadian contemporary artist.
Ms Xu is a self-trained painter, who is good at acrylic and oil painting. She paints like a child. Her works are best known for the pure, instinctive and childlike beautiful natural scenes and animals. Her rich life experience and considerable insight enables her to catch the beauty of the sprouts in rain, blossoms in the fall,egrets in clouds, etc. , which are vividly depicted. She injects all her love and passion into her art works where we feel a tender, warm and peaceful heart.
Jiangang Wu, a most well known professor from Shanghai University speaks highly of Ms Xu’s artworks, “I can see something pure, simple, transparent in her artworks. I am deeply touched by them. She is a talented and unique painter. The beauty that her artworks depict is eternal. It is said that an artist matures when he has developed his own painting style. Ms Xu’s distinctive artistic style of purity and sincerity provides us a refreshed enjoyment. Her works is of high artistic quality”.
Xu is good at using colors. We can find Van Gogh’s Chrome yellow, deep green, sky blue, bright white, rose red, which are all typical colors in her palette. Out of all establishment, she developed her own style, the outstanding power of her art—natural, simple but strong. Her artworks are hence widely collected by collectors from all over the world.
Ms Xu’s artistic talent has been fully inspired after she settled down in Canada. Her arts reflects the beauty of natural scenes and the essence of life. We appreciate her soul touching expression, the beauty and inspiration she brings to our world.
