Oriental: Architecture and Art
Oriental: Architecture and Art featuring the work of our Chinese artists.
Li Xinsheng is well known for his evocative ink and watercolour paintings of China’s northern landscapes. Cheng Yu’s figurative works skilfully executed with oil and palette knife has seen his reputation grow in his homeland China.
Juxtaposing the art are traditional carved panels. Lattice panels of individually crafted and joined pieces combine with fine detailed carving. For this exhibition we have included unique and very rare house feature carvings. These are important elements of the traditional Chinese house and contribute to the unmistakable character of Chinese architecture.
This is a rare opportunity to see contemporary Chinese art and traditional Chinese architectural pieces side by side.
