Specializing in abstract painting of the postwar period, Sabine Vazieux and Hervé Courtaigne are launching, for the first time in Europe, the solo show of Chinese artist Chuang Che.
Born in 1934, he is considered one of the pioneering artists of Chinese abstract art. Like Zao Wou ki and Chu Teh-Chun, he discovered and was inspired by 1950s Western abstraction.
The fusion of the East and the West can be seen throughout all of his works and is the heart of his aesthetic exploration.
The exhibition features twenty works from the 1960s to the present. Two of his most important works are from the retrospective at Taipei Fine Arts Museum that he recently put on display.
The featured artists extract their inspirations from the reinterpretations of their origin. The brush gesture inherited from the traditional techniques of ink and calligraphy, has been purified in which only rhythm and vitality remained.
The exhibition will present two generations of artists, the pioneers of the new experiments and the succeeding generation with another perspective on tradition.
After years of searching for and meeting with artists worldwide, Sabine Vazieux is delighted to present an unprecedented exhibition dedicated to the pioneers of Chinese abstract artists.
For the very first time in Europe, thirty works by the Chinese avant-garde abstract artists from the same era of Zao Wou-ki and Chu The-Chun will be exhibited.
