Oct 11 - Dec 06, 2014Mao Xuihui believes that art can help us more clearly understand nature and human will, he illustrates both life and nature. Painting guaranteed that he would have the power to face the profound memories that life throws at him, and have the power to strive in expressing them – strive, because all this is not easy. A set pattern is not readily available for one to get close to a feeling. One must create works in the state of insecurity, to paint paintings, experience, and create new experiences as to express the things that life has given him into a powerful painting.”
Jun 14 - Jul 27, 2014The participating artists are connected in terms of painting language to the theme of “empty cold” through unique creative approaches.

Apr 19 - Jun 07, 2014Through a basic study of these three sections and the three generations represented, we can see that all these artists draw on various aspects of tradition. We attempt to establish a dialogue with Western modern art to form an individual language style and revive the eternal nature of Chinese art. The mission of Chinese painting is summarized with the following question: After Zao Wou-Ki, how can we thoroughly and abundantly rebuild the relationship between the spirit of nature and modern life, while integrating landscape paintings with those of scenery? Indeed, it is necessary to re-stimulate natural elements and activation of a Chinese artistic spirit. This will inevitably restart a new future for Chinese art.
