Those who are not conversant in works of art are often surprised at the high value set by connoisseurs on drawings which appear careless, and in every respect unfinished; but they are truly valuable... they give the idea of a whole.

We do not see things as they are, we see them as we are.

Sun Jiapei’s sun-dappled canals and bridges

Posted by Charley Parker at 8:04 pm

Sun Jiapei
Originally from China, and now living and working in Japan, Sun Jiapei is a painter with a particular fascination for canals and urban streams.

He paints these with a keen sense of the play of light across water as it flows through the angularly defined defined spaces of rock channels, walls, quays and bridges.

The broadest selection of his work is on the Eleanor Ettinger Gallery. Unfortunately, many of the images have been either over-compressed or improperly resized, to the point of degraded quality. There are still a sufficient number of them to warrant a look.
