About Lian Zhen

My name is Zhenlian, I am a qualified art teacher, I have been both Primary and Secondary School art teacher, now I am retired, I spend all my spare time in painting and drawing. I have retired from my work since 2002, since then I have devoted myself to painting. I like to experiment with new medias which I have not had much experience before, such as acrylic and Chinese paintings.I am fired with inspiration in whatever I paint, in fact, I am more inspired now than when I was young.
I like both oil paintings and Chinese paintings. In oil painting I like the richness of its colours. I love to cover my canvas with a profusion of colours in their dream-like imageries. I am often inspired by nature, flowers,waters,trees,fruits etc, I donĄŻt paint what I see but express what I feel, I often see the theme of a subject before me, and I choose to express it in colors and formsĄŁ My paintings are meditative and poetic. I enjoy painting animals too, especially cats, I usually add a humourous touch to my animal themes. Most of my paintings are conceptual realistic in style, that is to say my paintings appear very realistic but there are always some imaginative elements in the composition of my works. I think I would rather call this Conceptual Romanticism. My paintings are integrations of the real and the imaginative. I enjoy painting animals too, especially cats, I put a touch of humour to my cats. In fact all my paintings are not simple reproductions of the real world, they are integrations of the real and the symbolic.I like to make myself feel living in a dream like reality.
Working is the most beautiful pastime, and I enjoy painting as if it is my pastime.
Here is a poem inspired by my philosophy towards painting.
When you wake up in the morning
Be grateful for the sunlights
For good health and creative energy
Most of all for being a painter
No matter if you are great or small
No matter if you can sell or not
Because if you can paint
You are blessed with eyes to see all the wonders of the world
Think of those blind people and you can't find
Any reasons for their deprivations
You have no reason not to be grateful for being a painter.
