BEIJING Rodney Hudson Womens Jersey , Jan. 17 (Xinhua) -- Few people may be able to get excited over the guts of a fish, sores on human skin, or a half-eaten peach. But Mary A. Johnson, an American artist and lecturer at Beijing's Central Academy of Fine Arts (CAFA), is fascinated by such things and embraces them in her works.
In Johnson's creations, food clearly plays a prominent role, as well as the tension between the visually seductive and repulsive Gabe Jackson Womens Jersey , transience and decay.
"I would like to create a fluid experience of sensory dissonance," she told Xinhua in an email interview.
Food and organic dyes made from it are a focus in her work as food can be both attractive and revolting. "By using natural dyes in addition to digitally manipulated images, my art-making methods bridge the digital with the labor-intensive practices of craft," she said.
The artist works with craft-dyeing techniques as well as digital photography to produce paintings, collages and installations.
"I begin my work by setting up still lives in my studio that I allow to decompose. These serve as the images in my collage and digital work," she said. "Along with collage, I use various papers Seth Roberts Womens Jersey , synthetic materials and my organic dyes to create images and spaces in which it is difficult to determine what is what: Is that the guts of a fish, or the seeping sores of human skin, or the bitten inside of a peach? Is that paint or the slowly cooked juices of black rice, or wine, or blood?"
When asked whether there is a difference in the way Western and Chinese viewers see her art, Johnson said no, and suggested that human responses to given patterns tend to be similar. "Viewers are generally drawn to the unusual methods I use as well as the visually seductive combination of biological forms and colors."
Johnson creates her art in a studio Bruce Irvin Womens Jersey , which is located in her apartment in Beijing's trendy Wangjing area. Her fiance, her two cats -- all of which she found in China -- have also become part of the creative process as she has taken photos of her cats' mouths or her fiance's hand to include them as elements in her work.
Her Chinese intern, former student Luo Jingfan, helps Johnson with preparing materials for various projects in the studio. Johnson's studio is a place where there are multiple works in progress at the same time, and a laboratory of sorts. It was through experimenting that she made a discovery that has aided her work.
"When working with new and non-traditional materials, experiments are a guaranteed part of the game," she said Kelechi Osemele Womens Jersey , adding that was how she discovered that baijiu, a spirit usually distilled from sorghum, is an effective color stabilizer.
Johnson has also become interested in paper-making, a Chinese invention. She infuses the paper she makes with natural colors such as fragrant green matcha tea, red dragon fruit, indigo and black glutinous rice dye.
The American artist appreciates living in Beijing and witnessing its dynamism, and compared the city to a "living organism."
"With all of these fairly recent changes Marshawn Lynch Womens Jersey , China possesses a deep cultural history. I encourage my students to dip conceptually and materially into this history when making their own work. It is refreshing and exciting to see contemporary Chinese artists creating work from a richly genuine place of experience, history and culture while speaking to the contemporary context they find themselves in," Johnson said.
In fact, Johnson derives inspiration from her Chinese surroundings where materials for her art are concerned, be it shopping for rhinestones and other items on Taobao or strolling around the farmer's market of her neighborhood and savoring the colors, textures and smells.
"Whether I find new fungi for a bizarre-looking still life, or mulberries for a purple dye in the summer Karl Joseph Womens Jersey , there is always something here for me," she said.
"Conceptually speaking, I do find it interesting that traditionally, Eastern pictorial representation shares aspects of the contemporary theories of the Neo-Baroque. Characters may appear in one image in multiple places, representing themselves at different times," as opposed to traditional Western pictorial representation where one subject is depicted at one moment in time, she said.
"As my work fits int
