Feng Biddle
Saint Charles, Illinois

Feng Biddle didn’t have much exposure to art as a child growing up in China in the aftermath of the Cultural Revolution. It wasn’t until after she immigrated to the U.S. and stumbled upon an artist demonstrating how to use oil pastels that she realized her passion. Feng starts each piece by sketching on paper with charcoal, later transferring the outline to canvas like a stencil. When painting still lifes, she always outlines the vase first and lets the rest of the image develop organically around it. Feng works slowly and deliberately in her studio made of glass walls, reflecting on each piece until it guides her what to do next. When she’s not making art, Feng works as a data architect. “In a way, this is similar to what I do with my art, where I am creating structures for form and color. In another way, however, it is the opposite, as building data structures is almost entirely a logical, left brain activity, whereas my art work is an emotional, right brain effort. I guess you could say that these are the complementary yin and yang that make me whole.”

I purchased Blue and Yellow Roses a few weeks ago and love it! Feng's art is a breath of fresh air - certainly it is in my 150 year old house where we now have some excitement in our dining room! Her colors and composition are so pleasing and different - so glad that she is selling her work through UGallery. I am thrilled to be a owner of this piece.

Comments About This Piece

This piece is from a series of acrylic paintings I did on Yupo paper. Yupo paper is very smooth, and it allows the paints to move around freely. I had fun in the process, trying to be in control and create a lot of texture. This piece is on heavyweight paper and will need a frame for display.

Acrylic painting

Acrylic paint was made commercially available in the 1950’s. Acrylic is a fast drying paint that can be diluted with water, but becomes water-resistant when dry. Acrylics can be applied in thin layers and washes to resemble watercolor paints, or they can be applied in thick layers, built up for texture. The main difference between oil and acrylic paint is the drying time. Oil dries slowly, allowing more time to blend colors and apply glazes. Artists who use acrylic paints typically work faster than those who use oils. Additionally, acrylics offer more versatility and are often used for mixed media work. Artists can mix different materials into the paint, such as sand or rice. They can also apply other media on top of the dried acrylic, such as pastel or pen.

Paper

Paper is a very common surface for all types of artwork, including photography, printmaking, drawing and painting. Art paper varies in thickness and color. Read the notes section to learn more about the paper used to create this artwork. If not noted as framed, most paper artwork will require framing.

One-of-a-kind

A one-of-a-kind artwork is a unique piece handmade by the artist. There is only one in existence. The work may be part of a series, however, the piece itself is unlike any other. This piece is available exclusively at UGallery.
