Yin and yang paintings

Yin and yang paintings DEFAULT
Yin yang paintings and the symbol of Yin Yang is seen in paintings , materials , dresses scarfs, T shirts and even as tattoos. This Tao symbol of Tibetan origin is universally accepted as representing the two energies Yin, that is female and Yang that is male.
It is believed that every individual , everything, every object is  made up of tow   types of energies, active and passive. Colors representing these two types of energies when used in any painting  bring out harmony and well being. Every home and office must be a combination of two types of energies to bring harmony and good luck.
Male energy, the Yang energy is represented by energy colors  like vibrant, bright, shiny, colors of reds,oranges, yellows and golds! Female energy, Yin energy is represented by colors that are more darker, passive in energy, black, dark reds blues, purples etc.
Any energy in different levels makes the individual and the family environment in imbalance which is seen in ill health and restlessness anger.
For us to understand the Yin yang aspect of every object we must find out what response our senses are giving out for a particular color or object. When we wear a red dress or see red we feel energetic and alive whereas the same dress in grey turns our mood sober and toned down. Try being near vibrant yellow red gold cushions and  then dull brown black ones you will immediately feel the difference in energy.
Every home must reflect the energy of the inmates.  When one loves sober neutral colors go in for minimum vibrant highlights in room in form of paintings , cushions, plants, upholstery or knick knacks. Too much color will harm the chi of the room. In offices, board rooms and hotels,  where more energy is required add a touch of vibrancy in form of colorful symbolic or geometric paintings.
Yin Yang representing two type of energy forces the symbol always has the darker Yin pulling down energy and the Yang white, pulling upward direction of energy.
While Yin Yang paintings have taken a much creative turn we see paintings done in many different sizes, colors and images painting techniques of Yin Yang paintings.

Yin Yang Large Abstract Canvas Art

Our talented artist from the Royal Thai Art gallery has created stunning artwork inspired by the classic Yin Yang symbol. It is one of the oldest theories of the ancient oriental school of thought. On the center point of the painting, the artist has depicted a harmonious balance of Yin and Yang forces. His work of art represents the duality and interconnection of all things in the universe. One cannot live without another. As one will support and define another and vice versa.

In addition, the artist also painted the Bodhi leaf branches surrounding the Yin Yang mandala. It is one of the most sacred trees in Buddhism and generally known as a banyan tree. According to the Buddhist culture, the Bodhi tree has a powerful spiritual meaning. Because, it is a special tree, in which Prince Siddhartha Gautama had attained enlightenment under and become the Buddha. Hence, the Bodhi leaf has become a symbol of wisdom, enlightenment, and ultimate freedom.

This original yin yang painting is % handmade with high-quality acrylic paint on premium canvas. Essentially, the painting is decorated with gold leaf on a lacquer background.

Dear Artist,

You’re wondering what Yin and Yang have to do with your art? Quite a bit. The ideas and symbols of Chinese and Korean culture traditionally held concepts of dark and light. “Yin and Yang” is both a dual concept and a single one. Yin is traditionally “passive, dark, feminine, downward-seeking and corresponding to the night.” Yang, on the other hand, is “male, active, light, upward-seeking and corresponding to the day.”

The well-known Yin and Yang graphic symbol represents the interaction of the two. Each half contains the seed of the other, and they cannot exist without each other. Living within a circle, they exact a basic life principle. Yin and Yang form a cornerstone of Eastern philosophy, medicine and art.

In most Western interpretations of Yin and Yang, the two opposites are brought toward a synthesis. In contrast to the tolerance of opposites popular in Eastern cultures, the relationship of Yin and Yang is not seen as a cyclical process but as a key to progress.

Watching the daily activities of some creative folks, you might notice vacillation between excitement and calm, between contemplation and action. To some degree the nature of art-making dictates this. Together with left and right brain interaction and co-dependence, dark/light, sun/shadow, big/small, rough/delicate, strong/weak and colourful/subdued are concepts we wrestle with daily.

The philosphy of Yin and Yang is also useful when we wish to speed progress. Just as wheels on the studio chair propel the artist back and forth between application and contemplation, so daily action is enhanced by the quickened interaction of the two sides. This manifests itself in many ways: The feminine in us has a transforming effect on the masculine in us, and vice versa. Playfulness enables seriousness. Spirit and technique vie for dominion as body interacts with mind. While concentration and steadiness are valuable, many psychologists think it is during the neural switching that the good stuff happens. The artistic worker, in tune and feeling in balance, is better able to calm the inner beast, invent systematically, find excitement as well as flow, pay the bills and make creative progress.

Best regards,

Robert

PS: “One must train from a state of movement to a state of stillness.” (Wu Jianquan, 1870-1942, martial arts teacher)

Esoterica: An excessive Yin or Yang state is generally viewed as unbalanced or undesirable in both Eastern and Western cultures. But many whom we now consider great fall into just that state. Van Gogh, Rothko and Jean-Michel Basquiat were all ‘yinners’ to the point of self-destruction and suicide. The future may have something more to say about their work, but in the meantime you and I need to extract maximum happiness and maximum service from our own spans. In the wisdom of both East and West, if we choose balance, the result ought to be joy, productivity and community usefulness. It would be nice if this path also pushed mediocrity out of the circle.

 


Thought and action

“Gull Rock, Monhegan”
oil on canvas, 12 x 16 inches
by Donald Demers

The brush marks we create are nothing more than the evidence of our thoughts and feelings. With this in mind, I believe that painting is as much about thought as it is action. I encourage the people that I work with to spend as much time considering and contemplating their paintings as they spend physically applying paint to it. It seems as though this is the yin and yang at work.

“Rocky Lake Afternoon”
original painting
by Darrell Baschak

I wonder if we all practice the art of yin and yang to some degree without even realizing it? It might be a question as to what degree of success we utilize it that determines the outcome of our art making. Personally, I have read much material on the topic and have come to realize that there is “nothing new under the sun” with respect to that philosophy. We should all give ourselves credit for what we know intuitively and stop beating ourselves up looking for answers on the other side of the road.

 

 

 


It’s all in the mix
by Jean Burman, Australia
 

6536-01_02.tif

watercolour, 22 x 30 inches
by Jean Burman

Artists do seem to swing wildly from the Yin to the Yang in the course of their artistic endeavours… and it is interesting that so many of the “greats” dwelled permanently in the Yin!

Perhaps it isn’t possible to obtain the desired balance between the two… without losing the intensity of the other? It’s a bit like mixing complements in perfectly equal parts to achieve a perfectly neutral (yet utterly dull) grey! Far better to keep the mix just a little on the warm side (or the cool side) to keep the colour lively!

 

 

 


Gender objection

“Possessed”
watercolour painting
by Nancy Davis Johnson

I’ve become increasingly aware of the yin and yang involved in creating paintings as I get closer to the ulimate “yin” of my life’s end. I find this tug-of-war process of painting more fascinating as I progress. It’s even influencing my selection of subject matter and my way of handling the medium. Perhaps explains why some paintings sit unfinished for weeks until I get into a more yin (or yang) frame of mind.

But I do strenuously object to the tradition of attributing a gender to the description of yin (female-dark) and yang (male-light). What ballderdash! Isn’t it the male who usually starts wars and generally disrupts the state of things? I’d call that dark, indeed. I say there’s no need to inject gender into this concept and it’s obvious that this tradition is male-instigated.

 


Balance invites and holds viewer

“Winter at Fishslough IV”
pastel painting
by Anita Stoll

In the process of creating art, I want a mix of excitement, contemplation, mystery and suspense. It is part of my process to create a mix that will hold the interest of the viewer. My work is to find that balance of where to draw them in, when to linger, and where to place some mystery in the painting.

A painting beautifully executed can turn me off immediately. It looks like a photograph. It has too many opposing forces or none at all, making it boring. My eye and mind don’t have a chance to absorb, thus my journey through the painting is quickly over and so on. My process is the struggle creating that certain balance needed to invite the viewer in, hold his or her interest long enough to evoke some interaction and finally create a relationship with it.

 


Balance in painting and in life
by Gregory Packard, Montrose, CO, USA
 

092407_greg-packard-artwork

“The hero”
oil painting, 18 x 16 inches
by Gregory Packard

A good painting fosters a spirit of spontaneity and randomness, yet those qualities are most often brought forth with a solid understanding of the fundamentals: drawing, design, color and value. Lacking in those areas and you may end up with a painting that lacks harmony. At the same time, however, forcing that knowledge too much may lead your painting to lack inspiration. It’s a matter of understanding and then letting go, like mixing known chemicals into an unknowable concoction. The results can be enlightening.

Isn’t life the same way? Too much of living by the seat of our pants and life can become un-harmonious. Too little, too much given to us without merit, and we become bored or insatiable. For some people everyday is a chance to manifest their own destiny while for others everyday is simply another domination by life, job or kin.

 


Lack of Balance
by Gene Black, Anniston, AL, USA
 

092407_gene-black-artwork

“Haiku of Spring”
acrylic painting
by Gene Black

It is a great challenge to balance the yin and yang in life. In art it is even more of a challenge. A challenge that faces me is balancing the bold brilliant active parts of a painting with the calmer more neutral areas. Mood and weather can influence a sensitive soul to stray too far into one without having the other for balance. In contrast, sometimes that lack of “balance” in a painting is what draws the viewer and gives life to the painting. I am and shall probably always be seeking to find this magical thing called balance.

 


Mediocrity is essential

Bob Dylan (from Rolling Stone Magazine)
oil on canvas, 12 x 16 inches
by Dave Wilson

In your letter regarding Yin and Yang you concluded, “It would be nice if this path also pushed mediocrity out of the circle.” ‘Mediocrity’ is made up of many human efforts on their way to an enhanced self-expression. Everything will always have and outside, a center and an area in-between. ‘Mediocrity’ will always be a (subjectively) determined and relative ‘absence-of-excellence.’ You can’t and will not have one without the other. Meanwhile all sincere/naive efforts which aspire shall ultimately be seen as that which gave birth to excellence. The heights of the mountain rest upon the masses below its peak.

“The slow one now will later be fast, as the present now will later be past…” (Bob Dylan)

 


Balance keeps us sanely creative
by San Merideth, Santa Fe, NM, USA
 

092407_san-merideth-artwork

“Spirit of the Afternoon”
acrylic on canvas, 36 x 48 inches
by San Merideth

Here in Santa Fe, and in a few other cities around the world, there’s a semi-annual, well-attended conference known as the “Creativity and Madness Conference.” Through the years a number of attendees — psychiatrists, psychologists, and such — have become good clients of my gallery and so I am quite appreciative that we have this recurring event. I have nonetheless often disliked the conference name because it seems to imply that “creativity” and “madness” go together — like Bonnie and Clyde, salt and pepper, or well, yin and yang.

Your observation that some truly brilliant artists have been destroyed by being stuck in “yin” mode is accurate I believe. And I agree that such self-destruction is not intrinsic to creativity. It is the balance of action and reflection, solitude and relationship that keep us sanely creative. Wallace Stevens, a brilliant poet who plumbed the depths of inwardness while living a completely “real world” life as an insurance executive, articulated this balance with grace:

“I do not know which to prefer,
The beauty of inflections
Or the beauty of innuendos,
The blackbird whistling
Or just after.”

That passage from Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird is rich with layers of meaning, but for me, one of those layers is about that to-and-fro movement from action to reflection and back again. That movement itself is magical.

 


Deadline inspiration
by Lorelle Miller, CA, USA

“Muriel’s Marina”
oil on canvas
by Lorelle Miller

Your letter “Boat stories” inspired the feature article “Boats Stories and Art” by Pacific Yachting magazine. I was one of the 12 chosen artists and I must tell you that the project took on a life of its own. A wonderful thing happened in conjunction with this deadline. I decided to paint a painting geared for the boating magazine. I would never have painted Muriel’s Marina if this project didn’t land in my lap and inspire me to do a painting with a marina or boats of some kind.

I made the connection through a deadline of sorts myself. My emotions were heightened because we were waiting for my mother-in-law to pass away and here this deadline was on my mind. I began painting the attached painting, then made the personal connection by remembering how much my husband’s family was a part of the yachting world. I literally began to weep once I became aware of why this painting was touching me so. For this I must thank you. We are not touched so often and so deeply.

Yin Yang Symbol on Drum

The yin yang symbol represents the philosophy and religion of Taoism, living in harmony, and balance. The female yin energy is represented by the darker color, typically black. Yin energy is passive, receptive, and dark to symbolize fall, winter, and the moon. The male yang energy is represented by the lighter color, typically white. Yang energy is active, aggressive energy and symbolizes spring, summer, and the sun.

This yin yang symbol is embossed on the skin of a drum. The Taoist orientation of the light and dark teardrops is depicted correctly in this graphic.

White and Red Yin and Yang Pictures

This stylized yin yang computer generated graphic uses white and red colors. It is flanked by the eight trigrams used in I Ching divination.

Unlike Western culture that orients everything to the magnetic north, the Chinese orient everything to the magnetic south. It is the direction best suited for the growing cycle of foods and other plant life.

In feng shui, south is placed at the top of the compass. South is also placed at the top of the yin yang symbol. The yin energy flows downward in a west to north direction, while yang energy flows upwards in an east to south direction. This movement of energy creates a clockwise rotation.

Graphite Yin Yang

Use this graphite depiction of yin yang to help yourself visualize how the Taoist yin yang symbol represents the cycle of life. It begins with the spark of life. The light, creation energy transforms spring into summer that blossoms and swells with life. At the end of that cycle, the energy begins to diminish as the aging process advances and grows.

The process of life represents the four seasons of spring, summer, fall, and winter that are a never-ending cycle of birth, life, death, and rebirth.

The two dots represent not only seeds of opposite energy (yin energy living in yang energy and yang energy living in yin energy), but also the philosophy that chi energy is perfect balance of negative (yin) and positive (yang) energies.

Sunrays and Yin Yang Symbol

This yin yang graphic shows a north compass orientation instead of the Taoist south compass orientation. While yin and yang energies are opposite each other, one cannot exist without the other. They complete each other to form a whole chi energy.

Yellow Street Sign

This unique street sign graphic depicts a counterclockwise rotation of a yin yang symbol set against a brilliant blue sky and white clouds. Many fun versions of this cycle of life symbol exist. The symbol has universal appeal, regardless of how it's depicted.

If you live below the equator, this symbol would be a correct depiction of the magnetic north being the best facing direction for growing crops.

Hand Stenciled Yin Yang Picture

Hand stenciled on a highly textured and vibrantly colored canvas board, this blue and white yin yang art depicts calmness and reassurance.

The ancient symbol of yin yang is a popular subject of artists working in various mediums. From paintings and digital artworks to sculptures and jewelry making, yin yang art is a rich source of symbolism and meaning.

Yin and Yang Leaf Art Picture

This artwork gives a stunning representation of the versatility of artists designing yin yang art in natural elements. These elements include wood, cloth, and rope. They contrast one another, but also reveal how chi energy lives in these materials, as well as the natural leaf form. The diagonal line enhances the division of light and dark energy.

Yin Yang Collage Painting

This lovely red and tan yin yang collage was created by Anegada Arts. Consider hanging a yin yang design in your house. In feng shui, hanging a yin yang symbol in your home helps to maintain harmony and balance since it draws chi energy into your home.

When there is too little yin or yang energy an imbalance of chi energy occurs. This imbalance can cause all manner of destructive forces seen in nature. When your home suffers from too much yin energy or too much yang energy, you can suffer loss, illness, arguments and various disruptions to your life. The principles of feng shui address these disruptions of chi energy and offer ways to correct chi imbalances.

Yin and Yang Earth and Moon Painting

This painting further demonstrates the magnetic relationship between the earth and the moon in a highly stylized work of art. It is a striking rendition of the yin yang symbol, with the earth and moon represented in the eyes of the chi.

Eight Trigrams and the Yin Yang

This graphic beautifully illustrates yin yang surrounded by the eight trigrams. Trigrams are used in I Ching divination and also in a feng shui tool, the bagua.

The outer graphic that resembles a spiderweb frames the trigrams and yin yang symbol.

The artist chose to use brown and yellow for the yin yang colors, while still observing the use of opposite colors for each dot.

Light and Dark Yin and Yang Earth Graphic

This computer generated yin yang graphic is superimposed over a picture of the Earth. The yin (dark) side is composed of shadows that represent nighttime when the sun has disappeared and the moon (female) dominates the night. The yang (light) side reveals a daylight view of the Earth bathed in the light from the sun (male).

Dramatic Yin Yang Artwork

This three dimensional rendering of light and dark is a marvelous symbol of the movement and fluidity of yin yang energy.

The yin yang symbol is a counterclockwise rendition of T'ai Chi. Instead of a colored dot, the artist chose to leave the eyes cut-out and void of any color. The emptiness of the dots relays a feeling of incompletion and imbalance. Since it's a work-in-progress piece, the art conveys a sneak peek into the creative process not yet finished.

Concrete Yin Yang Carving

This sideways yin yang symbol is carved into concrete and painted on a large boulder in China. It is framed by the eight trigrams.

The tear drops of the yin yang symbol are believed to have been inspired by the koi fish. The two shapes symbolize a male and female koi. The dots are actually the eyes of the fish. The koi are considered to be good luck symbols. The yin yang depiction of the pair means the koi keep a watchful eye over those they protect.

Yin Yang of Leaves

This pretty graphic uses contrasting colored leaves to form a yin yang symbol.

The bright green spring leaves are symbolic of yang energy. Spring is the time of new beginnings and rebirth. Yellow and orange leaves symbolize the end of the leaves' life cycle as death approaches. The cycle continues and once more, green leaves spring forth in a rebirth of life.

Blue and White Batik Yin Yang Symbol

The truly beautiful and complex process of batik is used in textiles. Wax is painted over the design where color isn't desired. This art form reveals an amazing design not just within the yin yang symbol, but also the background of the cloth.

To create the veining effect, the wax is dried and then cracked by folding the cloth onto itself. The more cracks there are, the more veining the material accepts during the dying process. Tinges of yellow give the fabric design further depth.

Yin Yang Fashion Statement

This yin yang patch shows how many artists incorporate different elements into this ancient symbol. Wearing this symbol is believed to bring you luck and assist in balancing your personal energy fields.

Whether it's a dragon, a tiger, or in this case, a rose, other symbols can be added to the yin yang symbol for a personal touch. Use pictures and other depictions of the symbol in your life to bring balance.
