Contextual And Professional Studies
For this I’m looking into an artist and their method on making art. so I’m am looking into Tian Haisu.
Tian Haisu is a young Chinese painter who makes art by land skating, she makes black and white paintings. She create massive scale art by using her inline roller blades this combines her love for ice-skating and art. that have a tub of paint that slowly spill onto the wheels. she uses the front wheel to create the smaller details of the piece. her paintings are black and white landscapes.
This is a video of the prosses of her making the art. it also shows how she uses the roller blades to make this art.it takes you through her making her paintings called blood-lane-line it is 40 feet tall by 20 feet wide, most of her works are on massive scales. as she does her paintings she will fill up the tub on her boots. This piece was present in the California Institute of arts, It was also a really liked piece within the show.
Before she makes her art she will sketch them out as a design. Then she will go in with the roller blades. These are some photos of her making her work. The next photos are of her beautiful works. her works are both simple yet stunning. Due to the fact she keep its in a traditional style of painting.
She uses her unique way of making art, to make traditional Chinese paintings. she used her whole body to create the art as she has to use her balance to se able to use the roller skates.
her art includes a range of mountains, trees, water and sometimes buildings that are within the landcape she is painting.
This is website that explains a little more about how she makes her work and what she uses for her art. This really shows how you don’t have to use normal tool to make traditional art.
