Walking in the moonlight·MiMi

Chinese painting Silk 132cm x 114cm 2021

“ The first half of the name of the work is a opera name and the second half is the collector's name Mi Mi. At the top of the picture is a full moon, which absorbs the concept of "roundness" in Zen Buddhism, which refers to "the perfection and absoluteness of truth". That's why  I choose the phrase "Walking in the moonlight" as the prefix for the name of this painting.This work depicts a snow-covered bamboo forest. The bamboo poles, branches and leaves have different postures.  In order to make so many elements appear in the picture without dazzling the viewers, I used "three distances" method mentioned by Guo Xi in "Linquan Gaozhi" . The painting is smeared through the distribution of ink colors, so that the long-shot, mid-shot, and close-shot accounts are clearly defined, without being sloppy, and although the flesh is broken, the bones are connected. Dense but not chaotic.This work is a combination of contemporary core and classical form. The gestalt and the completion of uncertain points are obtained in the acceptance process of the reader's artistic appreciation. Aesthetic enjoyment is achieved through the Eye of Tranquility. ”
——Xiao Ran Li

XiaoranLi, Alias Hanshan, Dunan. Born in 1994, from Linyi, Shandong. The disciple of Mr. Wang Shenyong. In 2015, he was admitted to the Sichuan Academy of Fine Arts, focusing on the direction of fine brushwork flowers and birds. During this period, he was preached by professors such as Mei Zhongzhi, Kang Yi, Hou Weiwei, and Ma Yuanyuan. Member of the Top-notch Talents Workshop of Sichuan Academy of Fine Arts. Member of Sichuan Gongbi Painting Society. In 2019, he graduated from the School of Chinese Painting and Calligraphy Art of Sichuan Academy of Fine Arts with a bachelor's degree. Now lives in Chongqing.

The artist is good at claborate-style painting, silk flowers and birds and other painting works. Most of his works have only a close shot and a long shot in order to create a sense of plain and far-reaching. His works have been pursuing a freehand brushwork, that is, "artistic conception" and "artistic interest". While pursuing the meticulous portrayal, Xiaoran Li paid more attention to the overall artistic conception and atmosphere of the work, and to the vitality, momentum, rhythm and implication of the main body of the picture. This can help us understand why his works can radiate fresh vitality in the seemingly flat and quiet pictures.
