|This srt-form originated in China 300 years ago during the Qin dynasty, Kongxi Emperor and has become a bright pearl in the pantheon of traditional Chinese folk art. Utilizing the drafting techniques of traditional Chinese painting combined with the craftsmanship of traditional sculpture, all iron paintings are hand crafted using the stroke of the hammer as a brush and native iron itself as the paint. Smelting, forging, drilling and filling becomes a fine artistic pursuit as each iron onto the light background forming an illusion that is a finely meshed fusion of light air of fantasy and the dark metal of reality. |
At a distance an iron painting is a vivid study in balck formed with the unique style of traditional Chinese brushwork. On closer inspection, a 3-dimensional sculpture of great beauty emerges, the rough work of the hammer working in harmony with the fine lining work. Iron becomes bone, form becomes soul and a new entity enters our world as reality. This is the true reason that iron painting has flourished for three centuries and why its particular artistic nature has made it a highly collectible art-form.
