Xi WangMu (Controlling Immortality) – 36×48 Oils on Canvas


Xi WangMu is a Chinese goddess and guardian of the Peaches of Immortality. As one of China's oldest goddesses Xi WangMu has changed greatly over the years, from earlier more zoomorphic forms in early Chinese Shamanism to a formalized humanoid figure in more modern times. she is often shown as either very elderly or  young and beautiful, with a tail, wings or in a more traditional Immortal style. I chose to depict her with wings similar to those shown in pieces from the second Han Dynasty and described in Tang poetry.

This piece is Oils on Canvas painted in my signature ochre technique using layered washes and strategic removal of paint to create a wonderful three dimensional look and a strong emotional feel. Skin tones are produced using this technique with colors and glazes to enhance the emotive qualities and sketcherly aspect of the figures. The canvas is used as an element in this painting lending it’s texture to the overall work. The colors are warm, earthy and sensual with a wonderful tonal quality.
