Chinese Brush meets Gouache: Lin Yusi and Yeh Jen-Kun
Why We Recommend it
This show brings together the works of emerging Chinese brush painter Lin Yusi with Yeh Jen-Kun, one of the leading artists to experiment with Eastern gouache in Taiwan.
Lin Yusi is lauded for his skilful brush painters work and conceptual fable paintings which are inspired by his fascination with Chinese classical myths and literature. He uses a combination of the meticulous ‘gong bi’ and the freestyle ‘xie yi’ techniques.
Taiwanese artist Yeh Jen-Kun experiments with Eastern gouache, fusing techniques of traditional ink-and-wash paintings with gouache and silver foil, to depict the city as an uncanny lost space. Sharp lines, heavy shades of blue and omnipresent concrete structures are dominating elements in his work.
