Preparing the meal

A couple of weeks ago I stumbled across in a little art gallery in Guildford at the top of the High Street amazing art work by Bob Dylan and Ronnie Wood.

I was there again yesterday. I was pleased that they had playing in the background music by both Bob Dylan and Ronnie wood, on loan from Ben’s Records, as it goes very well with the artwork.

It is worth a revisit, and I was pleased I did, as there was different Dylan art on display.

As I was leaving my eye was caught by several Chinese portraits, but what really caught my eye was Preparing the meal.

Preparing the meal is worth a visit to the gallery. By Chinese artist Shen Ming Cun, it is very reminiscent of old Dutch Masters.

Shen Ming Cun was born in 1956 and graduated from the University Art College of Guand Xi in China, where he is now professor of European Art. He has had paintings shown in important national exhibitions in Bejing and at the Chinese Masterpiece show in Hong Kong. Shen Ming’s artistic skill not only lies in his superlative technical ability but in ability to convey emotion. His paintings depict the tribes of the Miao, Yao and Dong of the remote Sichuan region, who’s way of life is increasingly threatened by modernisation within China.

Shen Ming Cun has been compared with Dutch Masters, as indeed was my first reaction on seeing Preparing the meal.

Forest Gallery is a small art gallery at the top of Guildford High Street.
