FOUR OF THE BEST CURATED BOOTHS AT SEATTLE ART FAIR 2017

August 5, 2017 - T.s. Flock

NanHai Art’s booth isn’t just beautiful. It actually feels nourishing. The works themselves have that quality, but the compelling ways they are displayed only enhance them. Videos and small bios help lead visitors into the works by revealing the intricate process of creation. Traditional paper making and calligraphy dominate, and this lightness is balanced with water-hewn stones by He Kunlin and scrolls printed with a wooden drop block press, which itself is on display.

Working with Negative Space

September 29, 2016 - neocha

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.
