Cosmic Matter: From Nothing to Being

Fu Qiumeng Fine Art will debut Cosmic Matter: From Nothing to Being on Saturday, September 18, 2021. Cosmic Matter is the gallery’s first solo exhibition devoted to the artist and scholar Tai Xiangzhou. Conceived as a complement to the Art Institute of Chicago’s (AIC) show – Cosmoscapes: Ink Paintings by Tai Xiangzhou – Fu Quimeng Fine Art will feature 12 new works, including 11 vertical and horizontal scrolls on silk and a 13-leaf album set, that engage with themes introduced in his evolving series; Celestial Chaos, Cosmic Symphonies, Contemporary Classical Mindscape, and Revitalization of Ancient Artifacts.

An influential member of the Contemporary Ink movement, Tai uses traditional techniques and materials, including 10th-century silks, to create large-format works that synthesize his interests in classical Chinese literati painting, Confucian and Daoist cosmologies, and contemporary science. Tai’s works in the series Celestial Chaos, Cosmic Symphonies, and Contemporary Classical Mindscape reference classical landscape painting from the Song Dynasty (960-1279 C.E.), a period widely considered to be an artistic ‘golden age’ and a pinnacle of literati culture. His works for the series Revitalization of Ancient Artifacts are equally concerned with ancient Chinese cosmology but shift focus toward Shang (1600–1046 B.C.E.) and Zhou (1046–256 B.C.E.) bronze artists’ attempts to capture nature’s vital forces in three-dimensional forms.
