A Landscape Beyond: New Works by Dr. Tang Ying-chi

3 December 2021 - 23 December 2021



a|n Gallery announces the new solo exhibition of Hong Kong renowned multi-discipline artist Dr. Tang Ying-chi, “A Landscape Beyond: New Works by Dr. Tang Ying-chi”, presenting a total of 29 works of landscape paintings from two major series during the period from 3 December to 23 December 2021.

On view at the exhibition are 29 new paintings by Dr. Tang Ying-chi, including 19 latest works from “The Place” series, created in 2020 and 2021. In this series, Tang brilliantly blends Chinese and Western artistic vocabularies, using ink to depict outlines of mountains and scenery, and acrylic bright-color blocks to render the textures. The employment of multiple perspectives and layering of mountains achieves a unique composition with depth and distance. The mountains, represented in different color blocks and arranged near and far, create a sense of space that allows viewers to freely enjoy the scenery from a mountain of their liking, or to roam a vast expanse of pictorial space while exploring and conjuring up their own world of fantasy.

The exhibition also showcases 10 experimental paintings belonging to Tang’s “Anonymous Landscape” series from 2018. In each of these paintings, there is an image of abstract scenery with certain composition elements referential to Chinese landscape paintings. The figures in the paintings are portrayed by tracing digital images of pedestrians projected onto canvas. By placing these realistic characters in imaginary landscapes depicted in an expressive style, the approach results in a fascinating visual impact.
