Characteristics of era of digital art:new developing trend of modern oil painting

Characteristics of era of digital art:new developing trend of modern oil painting

Undoubtedly, we live in a more and more to “see” and “hear” culture as the leading factor in the digital age. So-called digital age, is accompanied by rapid progress in science and technology, in the process of large-scale urbanization, the emergence of new urban lifestyle and interactions changed in the past people watch and visual presentation, with activity image, still image and virtual image to “see” “hear” culture, dominated our lives, controlling our thinking. A nots allow to ignore the reality is that the proportion of composition of visual images in contemporary culture more and more high. “Seeing” “hear” the new culture, emphasize novelty, speed, stimulation, covet sensation effect, it is no longer like traditional culture form allows the audience experience reading slowly and continuously make speed, it is the speed force to the audience, and present a strong “one-way”, so it not only can not lead to the purification of the mind and the cognition of things fully understand, more is shaken our tradition of “real” cognitive standard. In essence, this kind of visual culture in digital era, its origin is due to the political or business of all sorts of ideology, is a new rise of mass culture. It is the result of the development of capitalist cultural logic, is also stressed self centered “modernism” the result of continuous development.
To participate in “jianghan stars artists after the exhibition plan – 70 – from landscape to the humanities landscape” exhibition of 10 young portrait painting artists, the digital age is part of such a cultural reality of the scene, they with sensitive force on the contemporary culture and judgment, starting from their respective ecological experience and visual experience, hope in the digital age to find a suitable for contemporary living experience and the expression of Chinese visual experience, and have rekindle the passion of the easel painting, which expresses the generation in the face of the reality of the society culture position and attitude. Their visual style reflects the following common to one another, one, and self-centered; Second, emphasize the virtual experience of virtual scene; Third, cold and cool and games. In order to restore the contemporary social and cultural reality of human beings, between human and nature, man and society.
A, self-centered
Artist self-centered, the motif and will be dressed up as art itself should be traced back to the realism in the representative of fang lijun, yue minjun, focus on self image and processing has become the main current art of the era, funny and exaggerated deformation of the generation of superficial, boredom, depression, depression, hesitation and anxiety and despair of reality show incisively and vividly, there are still several questions and depth of meaning pattern, time and history has to be decided this generation to become so. And generation, the younger generation of artists, while also in around the “self” in narrative, but the self is not a lack of vitality of the false, but the real social reality in a true self, or a magnifying self, is a from macro narration to micro statement, self survival experience in carding daily in the visual experience of reality and the present, the self is more full of romantic, more wonderful, perfect, more idolization of remodeling. This extreme fascination of self, both show this generation to the dreams of the future with confidence, more let them on the spiritual dimension of narcissistic tendencies revealed. Their “true feelings” has been replacement by substitute for emotional feelings pieces, their emotional expression in contemporary life scenes, the paint is not always a certain specific events, but they are countless times repeat fragments of life and experience. Their narrative imagery does not lie in the objects of everyday life, but in the contemporary life behavior related behavior.
Second, the virtual experience of virtual scene
With the digital age grow up a generation of youth, watching cartoon, listen to the karaoke, animation games, appreciate science fiction, etc., it constitutes the common experience and experience of growing up, they also gave them with boundless imagination. In the virtual scene, a variety of fantasy, stimulation, the paranormal, XuanJi, stories of virtual and actual, secular, in the future, the past, the history of the ghosts god beast with the conflict between magic, spatio-temporal crisscross the visual surprise and eerily visual impact, not only allows you to create the beauty of a thriller, more let you enjoy the pleasure of a refined extraordinary, through to accommodate to irrelevant, permeating the imagination without restraint, let us see the real life in the virtual scene bring their creative thinking of problem. In fact, in this generation’s way of thinking, is a false utopian spirit realm, where they can open the wings of the ideal, bold and unrestrained their passion, their thoughts, more can let enlarge their imagination, in the virtual landscape, they imagined myself omnipotent, gets, and their creation is not actually in song virtual aesthetic feeling of virtual reality as own duty, but in the real scene and the reality between concrete images, otherwise attempt to seek a judgment and thinking.
Third, cold and cool and games
Who says youth is not cruel, in fact the youth was cruel, cruel has been growing up with the youth, youth is fleeting, you want to hold, but always can’t catch it. Trance between, let a person ACTS born with nothing. Adolescent agitation, crazy, adventure, indulge in the narrative logic of young generation artists, has been replaced by easy humor and playful way. Psychological game with experience in their paintings, they abandoned the heavy fragments of the history of chewing, unload the ideal of a heavy burden, but there is no choice and pushed them into the digital age, mechanical copy and XuanLiang flashes and beautiful extremely luxurious consumption society, they meet the extreme materialistic, feel the diaphragm and the family of indifference. They followed the feeling, while flying in crazy and hand painted oil painting indulge themselves, and the cold and cool as they pursue, in order to express their feelings and youth life reality

Review Li Mu remote oil painting figure is not same wonderful traditional 24 filial piety

Each of us in moving forward, can have so a person back. Li Mu intellectual female painter, a fashionable woman meditate on the draw up the traditional 24 filial piety. When I saw her complete lifelike images, is shocked, completely is a classic, modern and ancient, fashion and the perfect combination of western and Oriental art. Li Mu remote Li Mu is remote, the traditional Chinese culture in her drawing after the innovation, let a person find everything new and fresh.
Archaism cloud: “one hundred lines of filial first”, “filial piety”, this also. Filial piety is advocated in Buddhism and Taoism, is also the core of Confucian ethics thought, is one thousand years to China to keep the relationship of family social moral principles and is the traditional virtues of the Chinese nation. Surnamed guo yuan dynasty scholar (the story of the ancient twenty-four filial son, into “twenty-four filial piety”, become the pulps advocating filial piety. 24 filial piety is backward, and unreasonable content, but as the spirit of the XiaoQin is worth reference. With a comprehensive expression of Chinese traditional painting is the Mr Chen Shaomei twice (1938, 1950) map 24 filial piety, argues Mr, filial piety is the traditional virtue of the Chinese nation, should be carried forward. In an auction at the end of 2003, 24 filial piety Chen Shaomei first figure is a Hong Kong people to 5.61 million yuan. Visible, of which the value of in people’s minds. Mr Chen Shaomei 24 filial piety has reached to the perfection of traditional baiban (painting subject matter.

Success to this kind of work, even to “art wonderful commensurate with character how, since moving to the”, looks like painting a person’s character that nots allow to ignore.
“Spring” is not similar to the spirit likeness, not strict adherence mass aesthetic requirements, no longer care about representation, the truth of nature by painting to show elegance, XianQingYiCu, emphasizes the unity of the character painting article, formed the unique style of painting. This is our country ancient many outstanding painter eight mountain man, yangzhou eight eccentrics, Ren Bonian and fostered numerous eminent people like wu changshuo, painting style, used their painting is not necessarily true, but also could not imitate anyone they draw the essence of! Li Mu drawn away twenty filial piety is adopted the wholesale oil painting style, her unique style of “spring” is also unable to imitate others
