group show The Art of Line: Contemporary Chinese Ink & Brush at Pearl Lam Galleries, Singapore
10 August 2014 - 21 September 2014
Singapore—Pearl Lam Galleries is pleased to present The Art of Line: Contemporary Chinese Ink and Brush, a group exhibition which looks at line as an aesthetic preoccupation in Chinese art, and explores how China’s ancient pattern of seeking cultural renewal, through the reinterpretation of past models, remains a viable creative path.
The exhibition showcases works by six Chinese contemporary artists: Lan Zhenghui, Qin Yufen, Qiu Deshu, Wang Dongling, Wang Tiande, and Zhang Wei. Although each of these artists have transformed their sources through new modes of expression, visitors will recognise thematic, aesthetic, or technical attributes in their creations that have meaningful links to the centrality of line that has persisted from ancient to contemporary times in Chinese art.
Showcasing works by six artists who reinvent sources drawn from the fertile landscape of China’s artistic development, be it the lines in decorative motifs of coloured pottery, bronzes and jades, or in the later calligraphy, painting and Buddhist sculpture, this exhibition explores the ways in which Chinese art can be viewed as an art of line.
