Pan Jian (潘剑)

Behind the Shadows


150 cm (h) x 200 cm (l) x 7 cm (d)

Oil on Canvas, Wood Frame

Behind the shadows is a unique combination of traditional Chinese ink painting and Western oil painting. Dabbled in black paint are the trees, or the impression of trees – a technique common in ink painting. The subtle gradation of black colour creates movement in the leaves, and brings the trees to life. To the bottom of the trees are smudges of thick layers of paint, outlining a windy road into the woods, and vast shadows that can be menacing at some point. Their solid texture contrasts with the airiness of the trees, demonstrating the artist’s gift to capture the essence of the two master-styles of painting.
