The Rosewood Beijing art programme is intended to nurture new talent and support many artists who are forging their careers and carving out a name for themselves through exhibitions in China and globally.
Artists represented include Li Yongfei who, exemplifying the ancient Chinese literati spirit, is a highly skilled calligrapher, painter and poet. Yongfei’s work appears in Rosewood Beijing’s pre-function area in a monumental grouping of scrolls each twenty-five metres in length.
Inner Mongolian-born Jiang Shanchun, whose work spans an impressive range of styles and media and are included in the permanent collection of the National Art Museum of China, uses traditional techniques to depict contemporary subjects or abstract themes. Jiang Shanchun’s watercolour portraits adorn the entrance to Rosewood Beijing’s Bistrot B and continue over two floors of the hotel. Painted from live models throughout China, the portraits highlight the country’s rich diversity.
Sculptor and installation artist Song Jianshu contributed various sculptures for Rosewood Beijing’s dining areas. Together with his colleague Li Yuanchen, Jianshu sculpted the two monumental guardians that flank the hotel entrance. Reinterpreting the traditional Jiao Tu, or “Son of Dragon” symbol of guardianship, the imposing figures feature clean, elongated lines and rugged bronze exteriors.
Represented in the Collection of the British Museum, Meng Liping moves effortlessly between the worlds of ink, oil painting, collage and mixed media. Liping’s artistic interests are revealed in printed scenes from her 2011- 2012 oil on canvas triptych, Hemisphere, inside the hotel’s RED BOWL hot pot restaurant. The auspicious Chinese symbol of the dragon, and doves and lotus, Eastern and Western symbols of peace, intertwine in a work executed in the style and colour spectrum of the Chinese folklore puppets of the Tang dynasty.
World renowned Irish calligraphy artist, Denis Brown contributed a major piece to Rosewood Beijing’s Reception area. Based on Rose of Time, a poem by contemporary Chinese poet, Bei Dao, the multi-media calligraphic piece is a collaboration between Brown and local calligrapher, Ma Tianbo featuring gold leaf, copper wire and etched acrylic. Brown’s work is also displayed in The House of Dynasties, Chinese private dining areas where the chrysanthemum flower, symbol of nobility and one of the four symbolic seasonal flowers in Chinese custom, forms the background to layers of calligraphy etched on acrylic panels.
