    • Krasner in Shanghai; Take One


      from Jenny Krasner / Added

      This is the first film I've ever made and it's part of my Krasner in Shanghai VLOG/BLOG series http://jennykrasner.com/krasner-in-shanghai/ I’m not filling you in on the whole shebang it's just stuff that I find interesting about China, Shanghai, myself, art, the art world and my work. I’m going to put up some film, writing, photographs and photographic composites. I arrived in Shanghai May 2nd and will leave 4 months later on September 1st. This first film you see was made with my Canon 5D Mark II. No one bothered to tell me it doesn’t auto focus and the shake is bad…you can’t really walk around with it. I also have a small Canon S100; not much better. Also, I sprained my ankle a few days before I came here, so I’m on a cane and can barely walk which of course is not helping anything AT ALL ;-). Please may I suggest that the film will make more sense if you read my synopsis of why I am here and what this is about. Being my first, I also suggest taking some Dramamine; by the time you finish reading, it will have kicked in. http://jennykrasner.com/krasner-in-shanghai/ Thanks, and enjoy! -Jenny

                    Also available to view on GalleryLOG at gallerylog.com/michael-goedhuis--yang-yanping.html On View: Yang Yanping at Michael Goedhuis Born in Nanjing, Jiangsu, in 1934, Yang Yanping is one of the most distinguished contemporary ink painters from China. She studied architecture at Beijing's Tsinghua University, where she married one of her painting teachers, Zeng Shanqing. After she graduated in 1958, and a brief spell of teaching factory design, Yang decided to study art at the Oil Painting Department of the Beijing Art Academy. At the same time she studied traditional Chinese painting on her own. In 1986, both Yang and her husband were awarded fellowships from the State University of New York at Stony Brook, and they have remained in America ever since. Yang is well versed in many traditional styles but has excelled in depicting the lotus flower, a symbol of purity, transience, the fragility of nature, and the potential for regeneration. She works in a traditional mode of the free sketch (xieyi) but has also developed creative techniques, including crumpling the paper and soaking or pressing inked paper on a previously painted paper surface. For Yang, what has mattered are the ideals of high visual quality and an artistic autonomy that allows her to embrace modernism without jettisoning the lessons from the classical Chinese world of high culture.
