Chen Ruo Bing Exhibition
This event has ended.
Born in China in 1970, Chen Ruo Bing now resides in Duesseldorf, Germany and Beijing, China. After studying Chinese traditional painting and calligraphy at National Academy of Fine Arts, Hangzhou in China, he moved to Germany in 1992. Since his graduation form the G. Graubner class at the Art Academy in Duesseldorf in 1998, Chen has exhibited his works in France, Germany, Japan and China. In 2000 he was invited to the United States under the artist-in-residence program at Josef and Anni Albers Foundation in Connecticut.
Ever since Chen was studying at the Art Academy in Duesseldorf, he paints simple geometric forms repeatedly on canvas, and gives equal value to the image and the background. This is his experiment to unite, in his painting, the tradition of Chinese painting which is already a part of his nature, and the European modernism.
With his shallow, decorative painting space, with the delicate blot of acrylic which reminds us ink painting in China, simple geometric forms and bright color which evoke the sense of joy, and with the metaphysical light overflowing from the inside of the painting, Chen produces very unique and attractive paintings.
This one person show by Chen Ruo Bing at Taguchi Fine Art, Ltd. consists of works on paper with oil. In these monochrome works, of which forms and spaces are different from those in his paintings on canvas, we can see the origin of his work, that is Chinese traditional paintings and calligraphy.
