meh, it`s fine, american`s are overly sensitive and weirdly religious, as long as he wasn`t forcing her to sit there nude or making sexual advances i don`t see anything wrong with it. Yeah it`s a little bit weird but different cultures have different perspectives on things.

I agree with Isseepy and SilverThread.
he IS a great artist
but the father did a pretty darn good job at painting the scenery and animals with apparently no real models, why would he need one for painting a human body?
I just think it`s a bit suss is all ...

I think the human body is a beautiful thing, and it is to be admired rather than avoided. I see nothing wrong with this. The father is a great artist and he did a wonderful job capturing his daughter`s beauty. Just as long as it wasn`t sexual.

It seems a lot of people also haven`t watched the video, and there`s TWO reasons that they`re epic failures for it.

A) If you`re REALLY such a perv that you wanna take this completely out of context JUST for the sake of seeing nipples, the vid isn`t censored.

B) In the vid, it shows that he didn`t just do naked paintings. He did multiple painting in which she was fully clothed, and still beautiful, actually, which goes to show that he didn`t just wanna see her naked.

Honestly, that woman is BEAUTIFUL, and she could easily be a model if she wanted to be, so it makes sense that someone would want to use her in artwork.

The fact that it`s her father only means that she knows him better than some random "artist" on the street.

Theyre erotic. In our culture `erotic` has come to mean gratuitous sexuality, but eroticism is more subtle than that. Its also odd how he took away her pubic hair.

Weird.

Any other person posing as nude or any other person paintint -- totally chill. But there`s just something odd when a daughter is willing to pose nude for her father and the father is willing to paint it.

I`ve painted nude before. Eventually the person becomes more like any other still life object. If it was someone that traditional values say you don`t want to see naked, then there would be a wall blocking me from capturing that art, I think.

All those saying the artist has `no taste` and his paintings are `atrotious` obviously didn`t read the article. His goal was to depict an oriental goddess with the traditional symbols of power and beauty affliated with it. In this case, the apparent `cliche` use of animals actually makes sense.

I don`t see what`s wrong with that, a naked body is a naked body. The art isn`t sexual at all either.
There are families that are nudists, so they see each other in the nuddy all the time.

Though I prefer to keep all my clothes on as much as humanly possible, I see no problem with this. There is a family nudist park near where I used to live in Ohio. Those families were comfortable. It`s just a body anyways. I would never do the same as she did, but if she has no provlem with it. She looks to be at least 16, so she has a mind mature enough to allow her to make these decisions.

I accidently signed up at my school to be a nude model. As soon as one of the art students mentioned it was like "Oh damn. no unsign me up!" I would die of embarrassment.

plus, all her poses are done in a way that hides her...lady parts, and often times that part is completely covered by leaves and whatnot. That in itself is enough to take the sex out and leave just the nude form.
But for god sakes man, find some other subject matter than tigers and fairies. These look like they belong on postcards in Hot Topic, or should be painted on black velvet or something

He didnt just paint her naked. After watching the video on the bottom of the page, you can see that he painted her clothed as well. Personally, I think he just found a model that works for him (and she is 100% beautiful). Also, I think the imagery in the paintings shows her with such emotions and poses that there really isnt anything sexual here. Just naked.

Her father`s an artist. Different context. He was looking for an image of classical beauty in his cultural context (to fit the goddess theme). She fit the bill. From an artistic point of view, it`s flattering.

Cost might have been an issue too.

It was a themed series of paintings. It can`t be all his paintings - do you think he just picked up a brush and had that degree of technical competence straight away?

i don`t see a problem either here. If the two are comfortable with their situation then we as the audience should do just the same. They painted that together comfortable and the art is meant to observed as such.
If it really bothers you just take it out of context and enjoy the paintings for what they portray.

Ok, What`s wrong with that?" Um it`s his daughter! I have no problem with nakedness in the USA. I am a citizen. I am just saying that I would not want to be naked in front of my own father. Nakedness isn`t the "ew" factor here. It seems that Daddy is the "ew" factor......Yes, the pics are gorgeous, and her Father made them. But really, if you had a little girl, would you paint her latter in life with her boobs and other parts shining????? I doubt it. That is why the pics are creepy.

Bob, I think if you didn`t know it was his daughter nothing would be said. The paintings are nothing sexual but symbolise clearly the story and folktales of china.

I seriously doubt something like that could be pulled off with photography. Don`t get me wrong, I know where you are coming from. Example; in Australia earlier this year (i think) a guy photographic nude 12 yr old kids for art yet everyone baulked because it was deemed too pornographic to be called art.

These paintings are not like that at all. I can put a link up if you want. I think it might even be on here...

its a north american thing to see nudity as innappropriate. i personally dont see anything wrong with it, she is old enough to decide for herself if she is comfortable stripping down. in japan and much of europe being nude isnt realy a big deal at all.
i know this french girl who showed us all her vacation photos from mexico, and her whole family was at a topless beach together! her sisters and her were all topless and posing in photos with her dad and brother!! it was super weird.

Those paintings are amazingly beautiful! There`s nothing pornographic at all. Albiet, it`s a tad creepy getting nekkid in front of daddy, but obviously they are comfortable with each other. This confuses me though:

"I will support Li if her ( I think they meant he) daughter is still a kid, but if she is an adult or teenager I don`t buy his idea"

Wouldn`t it be creepier if he was painting nude poses of his kid?

I have more of a problem with what the Critic said:

"I will support Li if her daughter is still a kid but if she is an adult or teenager, I don`t buy his idea; maybe I don`t know art, I just know what is moral..."

So..it`s okay if she is an under age child, too young to understand? no, if she`s painted nude with flowers, in a calendar. It`s to cute to matter if its consensual.

To each his own, like I said earlier. I think the paintings are beautiful! In my culture, you don`t undress in front of your father like that. It`s just the way we are. However, in most of Asian countries, it is that way, too. I am wondering if they are the "fringe" of their society. I don`t think there is anything wrong with it, but I also don`t think it is bad for the "westerners" to feel creeped out about it.

Lemon, it was done for art, not for the sake of being perverted.

The paintings are beautiful, and so is the woman. I can see why he would want her to be his model, even if she was his daughter.

Basically, what it comes down to, is while the artist and model were think just that, "artist and model," the rest of the world seems to be hung up on this idea that since the daughter was naked in the same room as the father, then there was something incestuous going on.

BTW, I don`t think English is the author`s native language guys... Cut him a little slack...

the goal wasn`t to get sexual arousal from painting the girl, just using her as a reference. Artists (like me) get this concept. I see nothing wrong with this. Is the paintings had been pornographic, then we`d have an issue.

Don`t see what the big deal is. How many of you thinking this is gross has actually drawn/painted real models? I`ve never once experienced anything sexual while doing so and neither should any artist. The western hysteria over naked bodies is ridiculous.

I am ashamed of how my Puritan country is so hung up on nudity. Nudity is perfectly natural and has nothing to do with sex unless you are so unaccustomed to the human body that the only time you see it naked is during sex. In fact, it is wearing clothes that is unnatural.
Also, heaven forbid a different country has different customs than ours regarding covering the body. Yet we (as a society) think it is wrong to force a woman to wear a head scarf. But we also think a woman needs to cover her breasts at all times, so much that we (as a society) make a mother feel ashamed for feeding her baby!!!

I agree with goalieJerry and zokeman.

This is OK because:
1. They asked the daughter if she WANTED to, she wasn`t forced. And she agreed. So did the mother.
2. They are not sexual paintings in any ways. nudity as an art form represents a existence beyond time or culture, because any outfit that a subject has always represents at the very least a specific time period, if not a class or culture.
3. His paintings kick butt. He is obviously a professional, and heck, who knows, maybe his daughter may get a good start as a model if she ever wanted to because of this.

A historical perspective that might be underpinning some points of view in western Europe and the USA (which shares a common culture):

It used to be considered more disrepectable to pose nude for an artist than to be a prostitute.

the question seems to be "is nakedness inherently sexual?"

If it is, then I could see why some would be turned off because it evokes a notion of incest.

I would venture the opinion, however, that nakedness can be non-sexual. This seems to be an example of that.

So, as a result of this thesis, what does it mean that people inherently associate nakedness with sex?

This would be an issue if he had his daughter pose in erotic positions or if it was sexual in nature. But it`s not. The paintings (which are very well done) are obviously not perverse or twisted in any way, and all it boils down to is a painter had a subject pose nude for some works of art. This just proves how ridiculous political corectness has as a role in our line of thinking, and how something so minor as this is even an issue here.

There doesn`t really seem to anything controversial here. A painter used a person with the qualities he wanted to model for a series of paintings. The fact that the model was his daughter is entirely a non-issue.

The fact this was posted here at all just serves to show how uptight and twisted some people`s views of nudity and sex are.

I don`t see the moral dilemma here. The girl`s the father`s daughter. He`s an artist. There are no sexual desires related to the main goal of painting his naked daughter. One has to see the aesthetic calmth that the painter`s oeuvres reproduce. It represents the typical Chinese mystique in its totality. The girl`s relation to the father seems to be irrelevant as she is but an instrument to amplify that aesthetic.

On a side note, my mother used to decorate my sister`s completely nude body with calligraphed letters and record it on video as some kind of fusion of body -and performance art.

She`s his daughter. He`s seen her naked before.
The paintings are obviously not erotic and he has mad skillz.

The girl is beautiful but I think the paintings themselves are a bit cheesy in that fantasy kind of way, though I do like the last one. On another note I think it`s hilarious how they decided to black out the nipples. It`s not like you`re preserving modesty by showing the rest.

the paintings are not sexual in nature.
the woman is clearly old enough to decide for herself whether or not this is ok.
i don`t see why other people`s opinions should matter.
they are beautiful paintings, and she is a perfect model for what he was trying to accomplish.

First off, he`s very gifted. While I think her poses and the big cats are a little...cliche`, he is able to paint in a photographic nature.
Second, There is nothing really wrong here. He isnt molesting her (as far as we know). She is just posing naked for a painting. The only reason this seems weird is because of our current notions of modesty.

It may be a little bit weird since they are related, but those paintings are beautiful. The girl is really pretty, and her father is an amazing artist.

These paintings are beautiful. Morality is a personal issue, something that is decided on an individual level. For these two, this is a perfectly natural expression of art. Just because you do not agree with it, does not mean you have the right to judge.

Well I don`t know how old she is, but she looks old enough that if they both consented, then whatever. You do realize that all of your parents have you seen you all naked numerous times right? I mean I wouldn`t walk around my parents house naked or anything, but that wasn`t the situation here, he`s an artist.

The issue is that society has brainwashed us all into thinking that nudity is always sexual. Guess what, it`s not. Nudity is just a lack of clothing. Whoopee.

just to clarify...i dont think the weirdness is just that she is naked, but that her father is painting her. i think almost everyone is ok with nudity in paintings, its everywhere throughout history.

Who cares? As long as they aren`t banging or want to bang each other, why does it matter? Its not like he hasn`t seen her nude before.

I don`t get why people get upset over using the human body in artwork. I personally think that the human body is one of the greatest works of art in and of itself, so it`s flattering to all of humanity that we try so hard to reproduce it`s greatness.

I would feel sorry if any of the "censor-ists" ever had to go to an undeveloped country. What would they do, try and throw blankets over everyone and their children?

"Personally, I think the world would be a much better place if everyone just walked around naked."

DO YOU KNOW HOW COLD IT GETS UP HERE IN CHICAGO!? Jesus, man...

On a more serious note, I think censorship is silly. Nudity =/= sex. I always walk around my apartment without pants. PANTS ARE RESTRICTING! IT`S THE CLOTHING REPRESENTATION OF THE MAN BRINGING US DOWN, MAN!

That wasn`t a very serious note, was it?

Why not? The two aren`t mutually exclusive.

On a side note - he`s a good artist and she`s a good model for the role of classically perfect womanly beauty in that part of the world.

I think it`s worse than censoring everything, because it`s selective censorship. The message rammed into everyone is extremely clear - sex is far, far worse than violence. Even simple nudity is worse than moderate violence, apparently, and I`m sure everyone remembers the GTA Hot Coffee fiasco. Assaulting people just to steal their car, OK. Beating people to death with a club to steal their money, OK. Running people over deliberately just for laughs, OK. Sex? OMG OMG OMG! BAN IT NOW!

I think it`s a very wrong message.

I personally don`t find anything wrong with this. As soon as there is someone under 18 is naked, people scream child pornography, which it isn`t. His daughter is doing it willingly, she is only naked in front of her father who has probably seen her naked a dozen times, and it`s for the good of art.

I personally think they are beautiful paintings.

There aren`t any girls in any of those paintings.

There is a a woman in each of those paintings.

The reality is completely different to the statement in the subject header, so the question is irrelevant.
