“I am rafting alone in the long river of time, and the place where a flat boat floats is my Jiangnan.”

In the creation of Shanghai artist Gao Xiaoyun, the Jiangnan water town can be regarded as a cultural symbol. The faint rain, misty bridge, flowing water, and the floating boat, all interpret in a moving way the truest Jiangnan Spirit. Beyond a realistic scenery, Gao Xiaoyun portrays water town in a poetic and dreamlike way, giving the viewers infinite imagination space with a glimpse of clear and translucent colours. In his ingenious creation the memory and reality overlap with each other, softly enveloping a dreamlike poetry. With the exquisitely blurred boundary of time and space, the charm of ancient oriental art “there is painting in poetry, and there is poetry in painting” shines in his hands.

A series of Gao Xiaoyun’s oil paintings with the theme of water town are curated this time to show how the artist pursues static and dynamic, active and passive intervention in the language of imagery landscape work; and how to perfectly display the Chinese ink wash painting’s spirit with the Western painting techniques and structures. Welcome to AI Gallery to breathe with us the beautiful nostalgia and get lost for a while in the wonderland.

Gao Xiaoyun (Gao Jing) was born in Shaan Xi province, China and graduated from the Department of Oil Painting, the China Academy of Fine Art. He currently lives and works in Shanghai.
