Prepare your house for Halloween 准备好您的房子迎接万圣节

Every autumn, as the leaves begin to change color, and the cool fall breezes begin to blow, I immediately start to think about Halloween. Halloween has been the longstanding favorite holiday worldwide. It is the perfect time to be creative – and “creepy”.

每年秋天,随着树叶逐渐换了颜色,微风吹来夹带着凉意,我就会马上联想到万圣节。万圣节在全世界都是常年受人喜爱的节日。我们可以在这一天实践自己的创意,也大可以尝试“古怪离奇”。

Through the years, I’ve haunted my own house in every possible way. This year I will be celebrating in Shanghai . I’ve gathered some easy guide to decorate your home for Halloween!

这几年来,我都竭尽所能的,为万圣节装饰我的房子。今年,我会在上海度过万圣节。这里我收集了些简单的方法,来为这一节日装扮您的屋子!

Decorate your front porch. Your front porch will be the portal to all of the creepy things inside your home, so it should be as scary as possible to lure your unsuspecting guests inside your house of horrors. Here are some great ways to add some Halloween spice to your front porch:

装饰您的前门廊。您的前门是您敞开迎接各种稀奇古怪东西进入家里,所以,应该弄得越吓人越好,这样意想不到的宾朋们都会被吸引到您的恐怖小屋来。下面就传授一些给您的前廊添上点万圣节气息的好方法:

  • Use the stairs leading to your porch to create some great visual impact for your Halloween display and incorporate different shapes and sizes of planters and pumpkins.
  • Add some cobwebs and spiders
  • Make some spooky friends
  • A bucket of dead white flowers and painted white pumpkins
  • Scatter some tree branches on the ground.
  • 在走上门廊的台阶上进行创作,让来宾们在门口就感受到视觉冲击,可以选用不同形状和大小的花篮和南瓜。
  • 装饰一些蜘蛛网和蜘蛛。
  • 做几个幽灵朋友。
  • 放一桶白色的花束和涂成白色的南瓜。
  • 在地上撒些枯树枝。

Decorate your front door and windows. The door and window are the eyes and mouth of your home's Halloween soul. Adding just a few ghoulish touches to your front door and windows will make your house look haunted.

装饰您的前门和窗户。 如果把您家比作万圣节的鬼怪,那么门窗就如同他的眼睛和嘴。只要加上点睛之笔,就能让您的房子看起来真的像栋鬼屋。

  • Attach cobwebs across the windows and dangle plastic spiders
  • Hang a wreath covered in bats on the front door
  • Splatter some fake blood on your front door
  • 在窗户上添些蜘蛛网,再吊几个塑料蜘蛛。
  • 在前门悬挂一个花环,上面布满蝙蝠。
  • 在门上撒上假的鲜血。

Make your furniture look Halloween-ready. There are a few small but effective tricks to make your home look abandoned, creepy, and ready for Halloween.

让您的家具也看上去有万圣节的气氛。 有一些方便易行又有效的小技巧,能让您的家看上去像无人居住的荒宅,处处散发出恐怖的气息,符合万圣节的情景。

  • Cover your couches and chairs with white sheets. Pick the oldest sheets you have to make it look like your home hasn't been used for years. Brownie points if the sheets have some natural-looking holes in them.
  • Cover your tables with tattered black tablecloths. Take an old black sheet and cut ragged edges all over it.
  • Drape your bookshelves in cobwebs
  • Strategically place a few fake skulls to spice up drab pieces of furniture.
  • 把您的沙发椅和椅子用白床单罩上。挑最旧的床单,好让您的房间看起来久未居住。如果床单上正好有几个很自然的洞那就更好了。
  • 在桌上铺上破旧的黑桌布。拿一块黑色的旧床单,四周剪出毛边就好。
  • 书架上挂上蜘蛛网。
  • 放些假骷髅让死气沉沉的家具更阴森恐怖。

Light up your home. Your lights will help set the eerie ambiance for your home, so you should make the most of the lights you have while keeping the house looking fairly dim, so that something spooky could pop up at any time. If it's too bright in your home, you won't have enough room for mystery.

屋里的灯光。室内照明能帮助您营造房子诡异的气息,所以您应当充分利用所有灯具,但房子要看上去暗暗的,好像鬼怪随身能冒出来。要是家里太亮了,神秘的气氛就一扫而光。

  • Tape plastic bats to the inside of the shade of an ordinary lamp. When you light the lamp, the bats will stick out.
  • Light some white candles with "blood" dripping down them. Simply put some white candles over a towel or paper towel, and light a red candle over them until you've dripped enough wax over it to make it look like fake blood is oozing down the sides.
  • Light a few orange paper lanterns and drape them all over the house.
  • Carve a spooky face, a silhouette, or another spooky design on a pumpkin and light the inside.
  • 在普通灯具内的暗处贴上塑料蝙蝠。这样打开灯,蝙蝠的黑影就会跳出来了。
  • 点几支滴“血”的白蜡烛。只要把几支蜡烛放在毛巾或纸巾上,再在上面点一支红蜡烛,这样红色的蜡油就会滴下来漏在白蜡烛上,看上去仿佛鲜血留了下来。
  • 点几个桔色的纸灯笼,在房子四周挂起来。
  • 在南瓜上刻出鬼脸、剪影或其他可怕的图案,在里面点亮。

Play up the pumpkins. Halloween would not be the same without pumpkins.

强调南瓜。 没有南瓜,万圣节就不像样了。

  • Hang some pumpkin balloons. Scatter them on the floor or hang them from the ceiling.
  • Take some pumpkins and paint them black, silver, or cover them in glitter. Arrange them in the corners of your home.
  • Open up a pumpkin and use it to hold potpourri.
  • 挂上南瓜气球。把它们散落在地板上,或从天花板悬下。
  • 把南瓜涂成黑色、银色,或裹上金属纸,装点房间的各个角落。
  • 挖开南瓜,里面放上干花。

Have spooky walls. Your walls can do a lot to make your home look even more spooky. Just adding a few things to the paintings and walls you already have will make your haunted home come alive.

墙壁也要看起来吓人。您的墙壁也能让您的房子惊悚起来。在您的装饰画和墙上添些东西能让您的屋子更加活灵活现。

  • Draw creepy eyes on your mirrors, so people will get scared when you look into them.
  • Cover your paintings with fake blood. Just make sure you put it over paintings that are framed behind glass and that it washes off.
  • There are a bunch Halloween wall decals options for fun decorations. It can be cute or ghoulish.
  • 在镜子上画上诡异的眼睛,当人对着镜子看的时候就会觉得毛骨悚然。
  • 在您的装饰画上抹上假血。确保您的画有玻璃装裱过,这样血迹可以被洗掉。
  • 有很多万圣节墙贴可以选择。 它可以是可爱的或可怕的。

Cover your home with creepy surprises. Make the ordinary extraordinary by adding a few additional touches to complete your home's Halloween look.

在您家里加上惊吓元素。 添加一些元素让您的万圣节装扮更加完美,让原本平平无奇的家变得与众不同。

  • Place an old birdcage on the floor. Scatter some fake rats on the bottom.
  • Set up a bouquet of nice white roses, and then cover them with little fake black ants, spiders, and caterpillars.
  • Make a bat garland out of black construction paper and drape it all over your home.
  • 在地板上放一个旧鸟笼。笼子里扔几只假老鼠。
  • 放一束白玫瑰,上面爬满假黑蚁、蜘蛛、蜈蚣。
  • 用黑纸做一个蝙蝠环,在家里四处挂上。

Must-read tips for a Family-kids-Friendly Kitchen Renovation 厨房翻新必读须知

While gourmet and entertaining kitchens certainly can be outfitted with family-friendly features, some households focus entirely on creating a space that works for the hectic daily lives of everyone who lives there. This means while accommodating children who might fix their own after-school snacks.(After all, their food and treats will be probably throwed litter  anywhere in the whole house.), specially to supervise them escape from I Pad, I phone, or computer, a parent who needs a space to organize meals and activities and look after children,  and even pets that eat in the kitchen.


老饕和娱乐化的厨房,也必须配备居家的基本特性。一些家庭非常重视在厨房开设出一片区域,来处理繁杂的日常生活事务, 这片区域也会给孩子们带来欢乐的厨房时间,他们可以自己动手准备放学后的小点心。(毕竟,孩子们的食物和小零嘴,是最会乱扔得家里满地都是, 所以有一片厨房区域收纳孩子们是非常妙的主意。)而且,这片区域尤其可以监督他们放下手中的平板电脑、手机、计算机,家长还可以一边准备饭菜,一边监管照看孩子,甚至家里宠物的喂食也能在厨房里解决。 And, remember those children grow, and a kitchen remodel should last at least 10 years. You want the kitchen to be adaptable so it will work for having kids around the house and empty nesters, so before you begin your kitchen renovation, seriously review how you use your current kitchen and set goals for your remodel. This way, you can stay on track as you make important decisions about floor plan, appliances, cabinetry and more.

而且要记住,孩子们都在长大,厨房翻新至少可以保持10年。您想要让厨房能应时而变,既能适应孩子们在身边的需要,也能在将来他们离开之后也能派上用场,那么在开始您的厨房大动作之前,请务必认真阅读:如何使用现有厨房,并为您的翻新计划定下目标。这样,您就能在决定布局方案、家电、橱柜和其他等等重要事项上不出差错了。 sourcing from http://www.hgtv.com Some tips you must read before doing any decisions. Questions to Ask:

  • How many children do you have, and how old?
  • How does each family member use the kitchen?
  • Do children prepare their own snacks and/or meals?
  • What about pets?
  • Who hosts the family gatherings, and how large are these events?
  • Do you cook for family gatherings (or order take-out, rely on a caterer)?
  • How many family members cook in the kitchen at one time?
  • What is each person’s role in the kitchen? (For example, dad cooks on weekends, mom makes everyday meals, children prepare their own breakfast, etc.)
  • Describe a day in the life of your kitchen. What works? What doesn't?
再做决定前您必须了解以下几点。问问自己这些问题:
  • 您有几个孩子,都多大了?
  • 每个家庭成员使用厨房的习惯怎样?
  • 孩子们会自己准备小食和/或正餐吗?
  • 宠物怎么样?
  • 由谁主持家庭聚会,规模有多大?
  • 您会为家庭聚会下厨吗(或订外卖,用外烩服务)?
  • 会有几个人同时在厨房里做饭?
  • 每个人在厨房的分工是怎样的?(例如,爸爸周末下厨,妈妈负责工作日做饭,孩子们为自己准备早餐,等等。)
  • 描述您在厨房一天的生活。哪些有用?哪些没用?

重点:

Easy-to-clean surfaces. Wipeability is key with family. Quartz surfaces, a man-made product, are durable, not as porous as natural stone (so less likely to stain). For budget-savvy households, laminate is available in a variety of colors and patterns that can even emulate granite. It’s not the real deal, so don’t expect to fool home buyers if you put the house up for sale. But it does stand up to spills. When choosing materials, consider their forgiveness if glasses are carelessly clunked on the countertop. For example, glass tile is not shock absorbent; and quartz cushions impact better than granite.

易于清洗的台面。

能一擦即净对全家来说至关重要。石英表面和人造产品既耐用,又不像天然石材那样有很多孔隙而容易留下污渍。对于想节省预算的家庭来说,层压材料色彩丰富,纹样繁多,甚至比花岗石还好。当然人造材料并非十全十美,如果是要出售房子,那么在售价上肯定会有折扣,但这种人造材质的台面还是很扛得住烹饪过程中的泼溅弄脏的。此外还要考虑到材料的耐撞击程度,比方说,玻璃砖不具备吸震能力;而石英材质要比花岗石具有更好的缓冲力。 Accessible pantry. Storage for groceries is a top concern for families, and the “consumables” zone often doesn’t get the attention it deserves during planning, according to Blum, Inc., a producer of cabinet hardware. Pantry cabinets with drawers that fully extend make it easy to reach items. Perhaps children have designated pantry drawers that are lower and contain parent-approved foods. “Promoting self-sufficiency in the kitchen and healthy eating habits is important to consider,” Pierce says. “If you can, make it easy for kids to make the things they like to eat.”

便于使用的食品储藏间

食品杂货的储存是家人首要考虑的问题,“消费品”区域通常在厨房规划中得不到应有的重视, 这是一家橱柜硬件制造商曾得出的结论。能充分展开的抽屉,是能让餐饮区的橱柜,充分展示收纳功能的重点。可以专门把下层的抽屉辟给孩子使用,放一些经家长们许可的食物。倡导厨房里能各取所需、并养成健康的饮食习惯都是重点要考虑的,可以的话,让孩子们能方便地学会制作他们自己爱吃的健康食品。 Open plan. The kitchen and living room are practically synonymous in a family’s home. One should flow into the other, and the lines between the two are getting more blurred. “The whole point is to build this beautiful kitchen that is user-friendly, but now you have to have those comforts that you used to have in your living room,” Bergin says.

开放空间

厨房和起居室,对于一个家庭来说实际是同义词。家庭成员可以自如地从一处步入另一处,两者的边界也越来越模糊。打造漂亮厨房的全部意义,就在于要对使用者方便‘、快捷、和谐,而如今这些适宜的设置,甚至还可以配备到您的起居空间,厨房和起居室开放空间,就尤为重要。 Snack bar. Features like an island will multi-task in a family kitchen, serving as a snack bar, dining area or place for children to do homework while a parent prepares dinner.

小食吧台

像家庭厨房内的多功能工作岛,就能被当作小食吧台,也能作为餐饮区或者在家长准备晚餐时给孩子拿来做作业。 Refrigerator drawers. Refrigerator configurations that include separate drawers are convenient for families that stock specific items for children, giving them permission to help themselves to food in the kids’ drawer. Also consider point-of-service refrigerators placed in convenient zones—even mudrooms

冰箱抽屉柜各需所需

冰箱的配置应方便每个家人,可以准备一个特别给孩子们食品的冰箱抽屉,让孩子们可以在家长的允许下各取所需。此外,还可以考虑冰箱健康保险计划,多放几个冰箱在方便的地方-甚至是孩子们的玩耍活动区。

Other Considerations:

  • A 30-inch baker’s height countertop in one zone; or a pull-out countertop that is lower and gives children ample workspace
  • Floor surfaces that are easy to wipe down, such as porcelain tiles
  • A family seating area, such as a breakfast nook, small table or even lounge chairs and a coffee table
  • Media such as a computer or flat-screen television
  • A family organization center that can be hidden away in a cabinet space, containing calendars, a bulletin board and other scheduling/messaging tools
  • Pet food storage bins built into cabinetry

其他需考虑的事项:

  • 一个30英寸烤箱高度的台面;或一个低一点的可拉出的台面,让孩子有宽敞的工作空间
  • 易于擦洗的地面,如瓷砖
  • 家人可以坐下的区域,如早餐角、小餐桌甚至躺椅和咖啡桌
  • 娱乐媒介,诸如电脑或平板电视
  • 可以隐蔽放到橱柜空间内的家庭组工具,包括日历、公告板和其他计划/留言工具
  • 橱柜里设置宠物食品存放箱

Europe is not a choice , it is a necessity 欧洲,不只是选择而是必需

Europe was named after a classical Greek mythology that describes a princess or of a queen which contains the elements of “eye, face, countenance”, and attributes of “grey eyed” Athena. It is because of this that Europe been always an epithet of beauty and royal and poetries that are devoted to this continent.


欧洲是以古典希腊神话里的公主或女王的名字命名的,其名字包含了“眼睛、脸、表情“和雅典娜的”灰眼睛“的元素和特征。正因为这些原因,欧洲一直是美丽、贵族和诗歌的代表。 Everyone loves Europe that the love for Europe has become almost a norm. Everyone feels there is nothing more artistic and romantic than loving Europe and many leave their hearts in the cities of it.

每个人对欧洲无不喜爱,以至于对这片大陆的感情转变为了条文律例。在他们心中,没有比欧洲更具艺术氛围,更富浪漫气息的地方了,很多人为这里的城市而倾心。   The best gifts in life is a second chance, various Europe immigration programs are just these chances to change your life. nothing is worse than missing an opportunity that could have changed your life.

人生最好的礼物莫过于第二次选择的机会,各个欧洲移民项目,正是您改变人生的机会。切不要错过了这样千载难逢的良机。 Europe is a must visit place. It is not a choice but a necessity. But a short visit doesn’t mean much, but living there, is a new adventurous experience. Various Europe immigration programs will satisfy you living in Europe, whatever how long you want to live, as well whatever how many time you need to return back hometown with absolute freedom.

欧洲是您的必去之地。在这件事上毋庸置疑。然而匆匆走马观花意义不大,真正生活在其中,才称得上一次全新的振奋人心的体验。各大欧洲移民项目,都能满足您前往欧洲生活的需要,无论您想在欧洲呆多久,或回到家乡多少次,在出入方面您都享有绝对的自由,生活工作两不误,但每天拥有的生活就是天航人间的区别。 Immigrating to Europe will allow you to escape from extremely hot China to cooler Europe, to study in the cradle of artists, to breathe endlessly Aegean Sea's blue sky, to enjoy delicious wines and Mediterranean cuisine.

移民欧洲,盛夏逃离中国的炎热去到凉爽的欧洲避暑,那是垂手可得;不仅如此,孩子们又或您自己,置身于艺术家摇篮的国度学习或进修,在无尽爱琴海的湛蓝天空下。每天尽情地呼吸,尽情地享受地中海的美酒佳肴,那是短短几日旅游,岂能相提并论的。 The most exciting and luxurious thing is you are not a visitor to short holiday vacation with fees of hotels and amenities instead, you are living in Europe with memories being built living there.

最让人心动且难能可贵的一点就是:您不再作为一名度假的短期游客来到这里,不用负担延期酒店或其他昂贵的费用,您是确确实实生活在这里的居民,这里的一切不仅只在您的美好记忆中存留, 这里的一切真真切切是属于您自己的。 The immigration programs in Europe: attachment table 欧洲一名项目: 附表

New Kitchen renovation guideline for your kids back to school 孩子返校的厨房翻新指南

Back to School season is coming up, are you ready to challenge your kids to kick off the summer relaxation into excitement for school?  We can do this by inspiring them with food. 返校季即将到来,您准备好面对孩子们的厨房大战了吗?想过如何面对他们下课后,既要陪伴他们,又要做饭的对策了吗?他们即将从慵懒的暑期模式苏醒,生龙活虎地来挑战妈妈的厨房了。 The first step to create great food is great kitchen. A kitchen should be beautiful and functional so that the chefs of the household are ready to roll up our sleeves and be creative without causing a mess. 超级无敌的厨房是胜战的堡垒,也是为孩子和家人们创作出美味佳肴的第一步。厨房就应当装饰得漂漂亮亮,功能齐备,这样家里的大厨,才能准备好挽起袖管大干一番,而不会被弄得一团糟;同样一个功能齐全的厨房,让妈妈们有足够的办法和精力,来面对那些精力过剩、顽皮捣蛋的淘气孩子们。 Basically, these are the countertops, faucets, and floors you should seriously consider for your kitchen renovation. Kitchen might have the most beautiful cabinets, technologically advanced appliances and high-end finishes, but if the layout doesn't meet the needs of a homeowner's lifestyle, the rest doesn't matter. Here's how to plan an effective layout to meet your needs and fit your space. 通常,厨房里的工作台、水龙头和地面,往往是您在翻新过程中经常考虑的地方。此外,漂亮的橱柜、高科技的家电和高端的装饰,也可以为您的厨房锦上添花。然而,倘若厨房布局和功能,不能满足家里每个人的生活刚需,那么其他方方面面都变得无关紧要。这里就告诉您如何设计出合理高效的厨房结构布局,既能满足每个人的需求,也能迎合家里原有的空间。

Make It Work

开始之初

When planning a kitchen remodel, it's important to consider how the space will be used. 厨房翻新计划,最重要的是考虑如何利用好家里的原有空间。
DIAMOND BIANCA 001
  • What’s your cooking style?
  • What type of appliances do you want?
  • Will there be people in your kitchen?
  • Do you want people to sit around the bar/island?
  • Will kids be in the kitchen with you?
  • 您平日的烹饪习惯是怎样的?
  • 您想要哪些厨房家电?
  • 还有哪些人会光顾厨房?
  • 吧台或中央的操作台需要坐人吗?
  • 孩子们会不会经常跟你进厨房?
How a kitchen should function is an extremely personal matter, and a floor plan needs to be customized to reflect that. 厨房的功能应当非常个性化,所以厨房的结构布局,也应专门订制,来反映家里每个人的需求, 特别是有读书年龄的孩子们的家庭。

The Scope of the Kitchen Remodel

厨房翻新的范围

  • Rearranging the floor plan to take advantage of the room's natural assets
  • Removing doors and walls that closed off the space
  • Installing a wood paneled ceiling
  • Building a larger kitchen island for storing appliances
  • Installing ample storage for quick clean up
  • Adding a desk area and mudroom
  • 重新规划厨房布局,利用住房结构的天然优势
  • 移除给空间造成封闭的门和墙壁
  • 加装木板吊顶
  • 搭建厨房中央岛工作台以备储放收纳东西
  • 增加充足的储藏空间,收纳规整厨房小东西,以便方便整理打扫
  • 加入办公桌区和孩子玩撒活动区

The mudroom connects visually with the kitchen by way of built-in cabinetry.

 
孩子玩撒活动区,可以巧妙地做成组合柜,作为通道和厨房连接。

Opening Up the Space & Removing walls and doors are key to renovation plan

打开空间,破门开墙是翻新计划的关键

If the original kitchen and dining areas suffered from a chopped-up floor plan, which, although large, still managed to be inefficient. Removing walls and doors was key to their plan. 如果原来的厨房和就餐区的房型不规整,这样即使面积足够,但仍然利用效率不高。这时候,破门开墙就成了装修的关键。 A wall had previously been blocked from the kitchen that makes kitchen is dark, and all the best windows were in another seldom-used room. Opening walls at both ends of the kitchen brightened the entire space. It also allowed convenient access to utility areas that had previously been closed off. 比如:原先因为一面墙而阻挡了厨房光线,让厨房变得昏暗;而所有光照好的窗户,都被隔在了另一间不常使用的居室, 那么这种情况下,开墙就能让整间厨房明亮起来,这样也能让居住者更方便地走到原本封闭的工作区。

Smart Storage Solutions,

both for Naughty children put things down & to clean up quickly for entertaining

聪明的储藏方案,

既能让熊孩子们归集杂物和扩大活动空间,也能便于空间清扫

Another rule is a "10-minute tidy-up” rule, so the busy mom can get things company-ready in a flash. Mom always wants everything to have a place to be able to clean it up quickly, so plentiful storage was a priority for their renovation, but it needed to be right at hand. A new square island, which is table-height, provides a spot for homework, projects and dining, with storage built in to the cabinet base. Bookshelves hold cookbooks, textbooks and homework. Drawers hold table linens. An extra trash built into the table speeds the daily cleanup and eliminates multiple trips back and forth to the kitchen trash. 另一条原则叫“10分钟收拾完”原则,让忙碌的妈妈就能瞬间把物品收纳得井井有条。即便是孩子们在厨房大闹天宫,妈妈们也可以让每件东西都瞬间有地方可以放。所以保证有足够的储物空间是翻新计划首要考虑的,而且这样的空间最好随手可得,越多越好。比如: 一个方形的桌面高度的中央工作台,既提供了妈妈做菜、干家务活的地方,还能让熊孩子们在上面做作业或吃点心,下面的柜子还可用作收纳。又比如:书架上能摆些烹饪书、书本和作业本;抽屉里能放餐布;在桌子里安放附加垃圾箱,加快每天的打扫速度,免去了在厨房及垃圾箱间的来回奔波。 With a new space outfitted to entertain family and friends, guests can drop by anytime to see the bright and clean kitchen. And hostess will also enjoy using the quick storage solutions clean up quickly for entertaining. 有了这样一处全新的空间,妈妈既能便于管理孩子们下课后,和妈妈一起的时间,又能和亲朋好友在这里放松身心。客人们能在任何时间踏进一个明亮整洁的厨房。主妇们当然也乐意采纳快速储物方法,她们能很快打扫整间厨房。

Contemporary Art is the growing trend in Auction House 当代艺术在拍卖行走势看高

Contemporary art is the art of today, produced by artists who are living in the 21st century. Contemporary art is part of a cultural dialogue that concerns larger contextual frameworks such as personal and cultural identity, family, community, and nationality. It can be contradictory, confusing, and open-ended.


当代艺术是属于当下的艺术,由21世纪的艺术家创作而生。当代艺术作为文化交流的一部分,和大背景框架息息相关,诸如个人及文化身份,家庭环境、社会条件,以及种族国别。这就使当代文化充满了矛盾和困惑,思维发散不受局限。 We have learned a lot about Contemporary Art Market from Zhang, Xiaoming from W.Ming at our TCT 3rd anniversary luncheon at the Vancouver Art Gallery. This is a valuable lecture to learn about art and life investment.

在温哥华美术馆举办的《茶非茶》3周年午餐会上,我们从W.Ming 的Zhang, Xiaoming那里得到了很多关于当代艺术市场的讯息。这是我们了解对艺术和生活进行投资的极具价值的讲座。 “…"the market" isn’t really an autonomous subject. It’s a diversionary tactic -- essentially, a blend of economics, history, psychology, stagecraft and lifestyle; an unregulated field of commerce governed by desire, luck, stupidity, cupidity, personal connections, connoisseurship, intelligence, insecurity and whatever.” – Jerry Saltz (b. 1951, American art critic) “...’市場’不是一個真正的自主的主體。這是一個聲東擊西的戰術 - 本質上是一個融合經濟學、历史學、心理学、舞台藝術和生活方式的融合;是一個受慾望、運氣、愚蠢、貪婪、人脈關係、鑑賞、 智能、不安全和任何不規範的商業領域。” – Jerry Saltz (b. 1951, 美國藝術評論家) For over ten years now the Contemporary art segment has been the art market’s second most profitable segment with its prices rising nearly as fast as the Post-War segment (artists born between 1920 and 1944).

十多年来,当代艺术一直是艺术市场次盈利板块,该板块和战后板块(出生于1920至1944年间的艺术家的作品)一样热度持续,价格飞涨。 Every art should have its unique appeal, which is the vitality of art.

每件藝術都應該有它獨特的訴求,這種訴求就是藝術的生命力 。
