This exciting contemporary exhibition presents the work of three renowned Chinese contemporary artists: Qiu Deshu, Wei Jia, and Zhang Hongtu. Ink is the primary medium of traditional Chinese two-dimensional art; it unites the "three perfections": calligraphy, poetry, and painting. Through a unique employment of the traditional Chinese materials of ink, brush, and rice paper, and by drawing inspiration from the Western art practices of impressionism, abstract expressionism, and post modernism, Qiu Deshu, Wei Jia, and Zhang Hongtu investigate and reinterpret conventional calligraphy and landscape painting with contemporary approaches. This exhibition is guest curated by Michelle Y. Loh.
