The installation in Beijing, China called 'My Animal World' formed part of the Hidden Worlds exhibition at Harmony Space Gallery by Australian contemporary artist Anna Glynn. This exhibition included an installation made up of a series of diaphanous silken hangings in a glass walled room with multiple sounds echoing softly...a strange forest of animals hanging suspended...moving gently in response to the movement of the viewer. The vocal soundtrack is by Chinese artist Nick Tsai (Cai JingLi) and is a beautiful Chinese song - we are not sure where it is from.
In this magical exhibition Australian artist Anna Glynn creates enchanting, dreamlike works, fusing Chinese traditional ink painting techniques with a Western aesthetic to create a new contemporary style. Glynn has spent extensive time in China developing this new genre that utilises the natural character of the Chinese materials. She uses semi-transparent, diaphanous papers and layering of inks to create an enchanted world where, hidden within the image, new stories unfold...nothing is as it seems! This exhibition was included by the Australian Embassy, Beijing as part of the celebration of the 40th anniversary of Australia-China diplomatic relations. http://www.china.embassy.gov.au/bjng/... 在这次引人入胜的展览中， 澳大利亚艺术家安娜• 格林带来了迷人的、梦幻 般的作品。她结合中国传统水墨技法与西方美学创造出一种具有当代性的绘 画新风格。格林曾长期驻扎中国， 潜心开创了这一使用中国绘画天然材料作 画的新流派， 她在透明或半透明的宣纸上以积墨之法层层渲染， 创造出一个 迷人的世界， 新的故事在墨色晕染的图像间缓缓的铺展开来. . . 悄无声息。
