About the Artwork:

Tile Sparrows, 2021. Xiu Yitang. Ink and color on rice paper.

This is a fine brush painting. It showcases sparrows, which often found taking shelter between roof tiles, hence aptly named "Tile Sparrows." From the left extends a branch of crabapple. Its fruits hang sparsely from the twig, with leaves exhibiting the touches of autumn frost. These leaves are painted in a delightful blend of red, yellow, and green, vividly depicting the season's transition. However, some of the leaves and fruits show signs of insect damage, hinting at the cycle of nature.

On this crabapple branch, five sparrows perch. Four of them engage in various activities—some tucking in their necks in rest, others preening their feathers, each with a distinct posture and exuding a sense of calm. However, the central sparrow looks up alertly, spotting a tiny bee on the leaf above. It tilts its head, ready to peck, while the bee, sensing danger, raises its tail, preparing to defend itself. This scene beautifully captures a moment of stillness, yet teeming with underlying motion—a balance of tension and tranquility, perfectly embodying the principles of traditional Chinese painting.

The detailing of the sparrows' feathers is remarkably realistic. The crabapple leaves are rendered using light strokes and soft coloring to convey their delicate, moisture-deprived autumnal texture. The sparrows, fruits, and leaves are intricately connected by the branches, creating an organized, net-like composition. Upon closer inspection, even the slender inked branches, though fine, are shaded to distinguish light and shadow, imparting a three-dimensional look and showcasing their robustness.
