包氏藝術中心展出梅青"花天下"

 Mei Ching: Fantasies of Spring
梅青中国画展花天下
BCNC Pao Arts Center, 99 Albany Street, Boston, MA
May 6 - August 26, 2017

Boston, MA – In its inaugural exhibition, the Pao Arts Center presents the work of Chinese brush-painter, Mei Ching.  Mei Ching was born in Taishan, Guangdong in 1938. From 1957-65, Mei Ching studied at the Hubei Institute of Fine Arts in the Department of Traditional Chinese Painting with a concentration in Birds and Flowers. He moved to Boston in 1980 with his family and has continued to study, paint, teach and share his love of Chinese art.

Mr. Mei believes that the essence of Chinese art is the emotional feeling that a creation evokes in those who appreciate the work and the lasting impression it instills upon those who has seen something they enjoyed. In his exhibit, Mei Ching celebrates the arrival of spring, as well as the beauty and re-awakening that the season represents.

Exhibit highlights:

World of Flowers (花天下) depicts a pavilion nestled into a mountainside covered with flowers in full bloom. Using foreshortening to highlight the branch above, Mei Ching invites viewers to enter the realm of the painting and imagine themselves surrounded by blossoming trees. One flower is just about to bud, signaling the arrival of spring.

The philosopher Zhuangzi’s famous anecdote on the happiness of fish left a lasting impression on Mei Ching, and his painting Song of Fish (鱼歌) captures their joy, as they swim freely. Mei Ching hopes everyone who visits the gallery can experience the joie de vivre that the fish embody.

In Spring in the Qinling Mountains (秦嶺之春), a group of pandas gathers in the forests of the Qinling Mountains with the arrival of spring. Bathed in natural light and surrounded by lush nature, Mei Ching imagines them as a warm, welcoming family. As pandas serve as “ambassadors” for China, Mei Ching believes that art can play a diplomatic role as well, transcending ethnic and regional boundaries.
