    About

    'Chatting over Tea' by Wu Jide, 1984. 'Chatting over Tea' shows the interior of a typical tea or noodle shop in southern China. Two elderly men sit smoking at a table and chatting over a cup of tea. One of them seems to have brought his grandchild, who sits next to him, happily absorbed in reading a little book. Customers are being served in the background. The viewer is led through open doors and windows to a busy alley with stalls selling clothes and other goods. The interior of the teashop is suffused with a dim light in which the silhouettes of the two conversing men appear like paper cutouts. Wu Jide shows a masterly control over colour gradations and catches a typical moment of leisure among the people of his native county. A native of Yuhang in the province of Zhejiang, Wu Jide graduated from Zhejiang Academy of Fine Arts and worked as an artist at the Lu Xun Memorial Museum in Shaoxing. He then became professor at the National Academy of Fine Arts in Hangzhou. Having spent his whole life and career in the southern Jiangnan water region, Wu mostly depicts scenes from that area and makes woodcuts using water- soluble ink, a technique with a long history there.
