Textured Landscapes of Taiwanese Abstract Painter Hu Chi-Chung
Why We Recommend it
As the first solo exhibition of the artist’s work since he passed away in 2012, Galerie du Monde showcases Hu’s abstract landscape paintings.
A self-taught artist, Hu Chi-Chung moved to Taiwan in 1950 where he started his career as a painter. Most of Hu’s paintings are comprised of thin layers of paint and detailed texture and made using oil with sand on canvas – the artist’s unique method of painting which he first developed in 1958. As one of the most influential Fifth Moon members, Hu created his own painting styles and techniques which were based on traditional Chinese ink painting.
As the first solo exhibition of the artist’s work since he passed away in 2012, Galerie du Monde showcases Hu’s abstract landscape paintings that he created from the late 1950s to the 1980s, many of which have never been shown to the public before. Important archive materials related to the artist, such as catalogues, brochures and photos will also be displayed.
