It is about half a year ago when I first saw Sanzi’s works.With the suggestion from a friend of mine, I went to Sanzi’s art space at M50 which is just near the Suzhou river.I saw the great momentum which is also very transcendent and felt suddenly enlightened when first sight of his works.The transcendent and Daoist artistic conception in his works is aimed at express the the nature of universe and the metabolism of everything. Sanzi present the Chinese traditional Daoist philosophical thinking on the canvas in the way of representational art form which has a strong visual impact and artistic appeal.Days ago, the Sanzi Garden at Qiandeng village Jiangsu was completed and this garden is designed and built by himself. At the completion ceremony, the journalist from ShangHai Securities News has a deep conversation with Mr. Sanzi.
3 Brokerage agencys will cooperate to promote his works to the global marketThere is light rain the day completion ceremony was held. Guests walk in the Sanzi Garden with the melody of a singer.The garden is not too large but there are all kinds of trees and Chinese traditional architectures. The bricks，tiles ,windows and doors are all have a long history. Those are all Mr. Sanzi’s precious collection. He found and bought them from all over the country. Almost every detail of the garden express Sanzi’s esteem to the Chinese traditional culture and his humanistic feeling.It cost about 5 years to finish the garden from concepetion，design to build according to what he said. It is his largest work and take the longest.
This ceremony also contains another important
section----The celebration of Mr. Sanzi signed with Huajinghuihe Company.Huajinghuihe
Company is a lager company which contains investment and financing both in the
traditional field and art. They also deeply cooperate with the famous
international art organizations and are aimed at attracting the best art
institutions and artists from other countries.
This company also signed with Mr. Zhan Jianjun(Professor and Doctoral tutor of central academy of fine arts，Chairman of China Oil Painting Society, vice Chairman of China Artists Association) not long ago. Sanzi is the second famous artist signed with this company.
Sanzi has already signed with other two art organizations before: the Taglialatella Galleries from New York and the OVAS & Art Weme Galleries from Singapore and Malaysia. The Taglialatella Galleries is the agency of Mr. Sanzi at USA and Europe. And the OVAS and Art Weme Galleries is his agency at Asia.The Taglialatella Galleries is a very famous gallery sharing highest reputation in New York which has a history of more than 40 years. The gallery has already signed with Andy Warhol, Jeff Koons and Andrew Wyeth and also cooperate with Picasso in early time.And Sanzi is the only Chinese artist who signed with them.
”Dom, the boss of the gallery, loves Chinese traditional culture
very much. And the theme of my works are from the Daoism. That is the most traditional
philosophical theory of China. I think that is why he want to cooperate with me.”
After reviewing the Chinese contemporary art market in these years，we can find that there are a large number of works which make culture and philosophy as their theme. But hardly can they express the Chinese traditional philosophical thinking actually. Most of these works are just designed to cater to the aesthetic needs of market and buyer. Sanzi deeply understand the the essence of Taoist Philosophy and express the abstract philosophy on the artistic works. It is inseparable with his rough childhood experience and rich life experience.He think that a true artist should be based on three points: firstly, solid basic skill; secondly, profound culture background and thirdly, a wealth of life experience. These are the source inspiration.
After graduated from the college, Sanzi go travelling and living at many cities. He tried many art related work, but most of them are not successful.Facing the nadir of career and life, he calm down and began to seriously think about the value and meaning of life, also began to gradually realize the essence of Lao Zi and Zhuang Zi's philosophy.Thinking about the outlook on life and the universe, he was in a subtle influence , the style of his works began to change, and Taoist philosophy began to gradually integrate into his works.
While living in America for several years, I was inspired a lot and learnt more about the Daoist philosophy. For example, the figures in my works are all very small, because I want to tell people that we are also tiny when in contrast with the earth, the solar system and the universe. As Lao Tzu see the world and individual in the view of the universe. That is more intuitive to reflect the relationship between man and nature.” Said Sanzi.
