Contemporary Chinese artist Wang Tiande’s paintings engage with the cultural history of ink and its influence on the development of Chinese painting and personal expression. His work is deep and brooding, often rooted in classical landscapes and calligraphy but executed in a way that breathes new life and meaning into the traditional art form. His upcoming exhibition Literati Gatheringwill be showcased at San Francisco Bay’s Asia Art Week. It presents the artist’s “Houshan” series of layered, deconstructed compositional elements, created in his unique style as a response to the paintings and calligraphy of classical Chinese masters. Wang hopes to inspire discussion about the past, the present, and the ability to respect the timelessness of traditional art forms.

What would it take to accelerate innovation in China, just as a once raging tiger economy paces sluggishly? Perhaps the country's educators can learn from the work of artist Liu Kuo-sung, once labeled a political subversive for his pursuit of western modernism and now oft described as the "father of modern Chinese painting." Both traditional Chinese ink painting and the epic landscapes of the Song dynasty as well as abstract expressionism and hard-edged abstraction inform his work, though Liu himself stresses experimentation above all.

As the artist delicately pulls the fibers out of his paper, one by one, the crisp snows of the Himalayas arise vividly from a haze of black and gray ink. From this exposure of what lies underneath the painted surface ground, this removal of ink, emerge with miraculous clarity monumental mountain forms. Liu Kuo-sung’s work both evokes and denies the accomplishments of early masters of landscape painting, who created grand landscapes by painstakingly building up their texture strokes in ink.Read More >>
