Introduction Julia Chu Art Paintings by Yadira M Raman. Managing Editor ArtTour International Magazine:


Julia Chu was born and raised in China, but she traveled the world after settling in the United State, Her paintings works her travelogue , focusing on the natural elements of places she visited. The theme she usualy engages in is Nature- its flora and fauna, precious to the ecological life system on Earth. Her painted images reflect a desire for all natural elements to treely inhabit a space that exists in suspended animation. Tha is how she represents her wild horses-all wild beauties forever in search of a place in nature that is their true home.


Working mainly with watercolors, Chu experiments on rice paper with Chinese pigments. Her work is sometimes described as mixed media. where feathers, collage, and bold color adorn the painted image, helping to complete its essence . Her painting method is more traditional, and her color choice usually centers around the sweet and serene, evoking a sense of calmness and peace. By studying nature  closely, She becomes involved in its power and grace-- this is portrayed in her work. With her bold brush strokes, she presents the power of Nature, while softer color reflect elegance. By being so closely involved, she becomes more aware of the dangers that threaten to overthrow the natural balance. Through her paintings, she stresses how the effects of global warming are becoming more ominous than over.


   Her paintings reflect a bold style which is unique in its appearance  and message. Chu trained in Chinese calligraphy, an art form that teaches about the beauty of subtlety and patience; all her paintings, therefore, never fail to evoke the dichotomy between finesse and boldness-- a balance that is critical to maintaining the natural order of the world.

繪畫簡介

 

      2015Julia Chu被” 國際藝術漫遊雜誌(Art Tour International Magazine《简稱ATIM》)”選为2015年度的前60名現代藝術優秀作品,並得“國際藝術漫遊雜誌的2015年優秀作品奖”(.“ATIM’s MASTERS AWARD 2015”)

             ATIM主编及奠基人VivianaPuello親自为此雜誌撰文介紹Julia Chu的画艺創作及其画”樱花”):

Julia Chu 1941年出生於中國. 華裔美國艺术家, 她用广泛‧變化的媒体包括用中國水彩颜料,宣纸,羽毛艺术剪贴等各種方式創作了令人驚呼的水彩風景画,她的感人而安靜的画面抓住了自然美中的非常獨特的既繁華又有空間的美感.她用老練的毛筆法揮上鲜明燦爛的色彩,她對生命的妙不可言的神祕的靈感所創作出來的作品喚發了觀画者联想起這正是我们一直所向往的和平,均衡,宁靜的天佑境界.

         Julia 把绘画主题焦点聚在”全球暖化” 上,發展了十個系列的画: 櫻花,抽象画,馬,孔雀,牡丹,美國中國风景等。她的画参加了許多美國的繪画学会联合画展以及2015年韓國首尔的亞洲國際邀請画展及2015西班牙巴薩隆那市國際藝術展。在美國召开两次她的個人画展及出版两本個人画册。她的十幅水彩画包括樱花被美國世界藝術書出版社收集出版在” 國際現代艺术大師(作品) 第九卷2014, 並發行到世界各地。

                --Viviana Puello-國際藝術漫遊雜誌主编---摘自國際藝術漫遊雜誌2015夏刊授與Julia Chu "國際藝術漫遊雜誌的優秀獎2015".

     2016年Julia Chu兩幅关於全球暖化环保的抽象畫被登在國際藝術導游雜誌發表2016年最優60位現代藝術家作品專輯中.國際藝術导游雜誌發表2016年最优60位現代藝術家作品專輯中编輯經理葉德拉.罗曼(Yadira M. Roman)-為畫家Julia 的藝術畫撰文介绍(譯成中文) 如下:

JuliaChu在中國出生和生長,移民美國後到世界旅行.她的畫就像她的旅行,聚焦在各地她观察到的自然元素。她經常的主题与自然相连(植物和動物),珍愛地球上生命的生态。她的畫展現出一個遐想图案:所有自然元素都自由地居住一個現存的空間里發展。她正是如此描繪她的野馬---所有野生美麗的東西可以永遠在自然空間里寻找牠們真正的家園。

她的創作主要是水彩, 很有經验用宣紙与中國颜料, 有時用多媒如羽毛, 藝術剪貼, 水彩著色。她的畫比较傳統以及颜色選擇經常是暖色和安祥, 喚起一種安靜和平安的感覺. 由於接近自然,她成為潛心歌颂大自然的威力和恩赐,這就是她的藝術作品的風貌。她手持毛筆,用力去揮出大自然的巨大威力,用溫暖的色彩反映出自然的优雅高貴。正是她深入投到自然,她變成更小心警惕顛覆自然平衡的危險。她的畫,強調预兆全球暖化結果如何變成從來未有过的惡果。

她的畫反映出一個与眾不同的大膽形式的風釆和啓示。她生長在中國,在其书法及藝術形式的训練影響下使她具有绝妙的美學和耐性毅力,所有她的畫作品精細而有膽量,所以她的畫從來未曾失败於雌雄異熟的情況.她的精巧繪畫藝術与勇敢大膽合一於一種严肅的保持世界自然秩序平衡的主
