Art Review on Yue Tian
Yue Tian’s works reflect the style change of emerging artists by realistic painting. In some sense, people can think he is subverting traditional realistic painting by "disintegration and reconstruction of artistic language", just reflecting the significant changes in real life. Yue Tian does not confine himself to a fixed pattern, and his art experience tells us that he is hungry for artistic exploration, innovates constantly his works, and now he focuses his concern on Buddhism ideology rather than metaphysical life consciousness. In his 《唯境无识》 series, he demonstrates strongly symbolism in contemporary context, and reflects a kind of sadness hard to express. In his painting, women, plump or thin, all present ethereal beauty of sadness. His painting includes flowing lines, bright colors and free painting, which take on naturally by flowing or rotating according to painter's emotion. In his painting, we come to see beauty in delicacy, tenacity in mildness, grace and strength in female, which are demonstrated in almost ethereal atmosphere, or in very quiet surrounding like a person’s picking flowers or a Buddhist’s sitting in meditation. His painting shows brush clean, full of tension. Ideas hidden in his painting are often overlooked, or are not fully understood, and these ideas are hidden in elaborate shape and composition of his paintings, and communication of his emotion. Yue Tian has his craftsmanship which promotes us to catch his unique thoughts conveyed in his painting, perceptual and rational thoughts, which deepen our thinking and enrich our imagination. The paintings are like small windows, through which we can walk into the painter’s inner world, pure and sad, which is also filled with his artistic ideal and spiritual pursuit.
