I’m from kindergarten began to contact art, when mom at that time, when art teacher in a primary school, so I have a lot of chance to see all kinds of painting at home, I like the look very careful, very nice things, always have a free will to close up, over time, I had a very strong interest in art.
In primary school, because my mother saw that I was very interested in art, she gave me some books about art, I am very interested in those books, read with relish, a lot of the content I have not forgotten. At that time, my cognition and understanding of art were still very narrow, and I only stayed at the level of fine arts, but this could not stop me from pursuing beauty. Perhaps because since the childhood accepts only when art teacher of the influence of the mother, I do manual for drawing and this is especially good at on one hand, I like looking at one another’s work from I was born, at the same time I also for these things very seriously, whether do manual or drawing, I have vowed to make the best of things.
Contact with animation, it should be between grade 5 and grade 6 in primary school. When I first saw it, I was deeply attracted by him. How does animation move? How can you draw something so attractive? At that time, I realized the fun of animation, I did not think of animation, actually rely on the way of drawing, one frame by one.
Animation is another enlightening thing for me in the art field. Before that, I had no idea that if multiple different pictures were superposed, it could eventually form a very smooth video. Not only that, the concise lines of animation also deeply attracted me, this kind of painting style I like very much, I found a lot of pictures about animation to copy, gradually my painting style is also more inclined to animation.
When I was in junior high school, I became more addicted to animation and learned a lot about the painting methods in animation. However, I prefer to use very simple lines to show the folds of clothing and the human body structure in animation, which I think is what I need to learn. At the same time, because of the wider influence of anime and my reading, I have become more demanding about the details and meanings of what I do. I really wish I could make my ideal object and what it looks like, but I have never been able to make something that I am particularly satisfied with because my hands may have been so focused on details that other parts have become a little rough. I thought it was my fault that I didn’t have the right tools and materials, but now that I think about it, maybe I’m stuck with something common sense.
After coming to the moon exploration, I became less focused on fixing my painting style and the limitations of making things myself. I began to use my imagination, with my own imagination, and use the available resources, to make a variety of works. I’ve found that once you don’t pay attention to the details, you can get out of common sense, you can have more experiences, you can have a broader perspective, and you can make more amazing things.
Life and death
In 2019, we were assigned the last art IP assignment, which required us to use various means, various materials and different expressions to make the exhibits. The theme I chose this time is about life and death. I have done different things in previous art exhibitions, but I am more interested in my thoughts on nature and the thoughts generated when I see it.
The last few times she asked me for an interview, she gave me some different opinions, because my previous works included both paintings and similar sculptures. But mowen prefers my sculptures to my paintings, because those are the things that really express my own ideas, that really maximize my thoughts, and those are the things that she finds very interesting, and I actually feel that.
Said to why the choice between life and death as my title, I think maybe mostly because of the time we go to the ELP went to xishuangbanna’s sake, I see a lot of very beautiful flowers, there are a variety of shapes, bright colors, make me feel like watching has unlimited inspiration, but it is a pity that I couldn’t put it back to Beijing, will only make it as a data saved on the phone, and can’t direct contact touch with careful observation. To tell you the truth, I really feel it’s a pity, because xishuangbanna is located in the subtropical zone, so there are many beautiful flowers in full bloom there, it makes me intuitively feel the great vitality contained in nature, so I was very relaxed during my stay in xishuangbanna, and in a good mood.
Back in Beijing, I’ve been thinking about how to visualize what xishuangbanna saw. At this time, I happened to see a video about glue drop on station B. Some people used glue drop to make handicrafts, and flowers were also used as materials. When I saw this, it occurred to me that I could also use glue to preserve flowers and plants that would easily break, and I immediately identified glue as one of the materials that could be used. In addition, since flowers and trees are static, real flowers and fake flowers are not so different from each other, which can easily be regarded as real. I also want to use something to better highlight the difference between life and death. So I looked for information on immortal flowers, moss and fish on taobao, which, with the help of gels, should tell the difference between birth and death. In addition, I also bought some plant seeds online, and I decided to let the plants grow before I started, so that I could see the growth more clearly, I thought.
Subject: life and death
Materials: dispensing utensils, eternal flowers, moss, gardening supplies, glass containers, small fish and shrimp, uv lamp, plant seeds…
Introduction: this work is composed of 6 small exhibits, each of which expresses different meanings. As long as they are all together, this is the real exhibition.
Product plan I:
As the book is made up of six different products, the six exhibits represent different meanings.
Exhibit 1: false truth (dead things)
Meaning: this work is made up of all false things, they are not alive, they are dead things, but their appearance is the same as living things, is (that is) false and true.
Exhibit 2: levels of vitality (living creatures)
Meaning: the theme of this work is reflected by the level and time of plant growth. Since all the plants in this work are living, more interesting phenomena may occur after a period of time
Exhibit 3: eggs (life and death)
Meaning: this work is a microcosm of all my small exhibits, in which there are both the living moss and the glue sealing the eternal flowers, projecting onto the other two of my exhibits, the so-called harmony of life and death.
Exhibit 4: geometric objects (dead objects)
Meaning: this work is I use a glue made several geometric decoration, I sealed the more meat, fruit and flowers of plants, such as its color and some content is I set off the cuff, or the time environment, their appearance and shape have been preserved through a glue, allow them to another way to survive.
Exhibit 5: small forests (living creatures)
Meaning: a small forest and exhibits two belong to belong to sense something completely different, vibrant level is still in growth, long and small forest is completely ok, so you can see the difference between the two, also can saying is I exhibits two another stage, it is because the contrast on the meaning, so I can make people more intuitive to see the differences and similarities between the two.
Exhibit 6: bottles (living creatures)
Meaning: this exhibit is the most vivid one among all the exhibits. By combining the movement of plants and fish, I can more vividly reflect the theme of birth and death, and add some liveness and vitality to the static exhibits for contrast and prominence.
Product plan ii:
On the basis of “1”, this plan will reform the less prominent exhibits “1” to make the theme more prominent and distinct, and make the content and appreciation more complete and richer than “1” without changing the meaning of the theme. (incomplete, modifiable)…
