Literati and Rocks Amidst Verdant Bloom
Closing Saturday, April 13, 2024

There’s still time to view Literati and Rocks Amidst Verdant Bloom, a meticulously curated selection of classical and contemporary art works that embodies the soul of Asian artistry at Fu Qiumeng Fine Art before it closes this Saturday, the 13th.

The exhibition explores the appreciation of rocks, nature, and calligraphy in Chinese literati paintings, which served as a silent form of communication among the scholars–reflecting aesthetic, cultural, and intellectual pursuits.

Highlights include Ruan Ji’s Poems in Running Script by Dong Qichang (1555-1636) and Scholar Rocks by Sun Kehong (1532-1610), which exemplify the pinnacle of literati taste in Chinese brushwork. Works by Wang Fu’an (1879-1960), C. C. Wang (1907-2003), and Wang Fangyu (1913-1997) further illuminate this rich lineage.

Bridging past and present, the exhibition showcases contemporary artists who carry the torch. Arnold Chang (b. 1954) offers his latest breathtaking boneless landscape, while Michael Cherney (b. 1969) presents his powerful bilingual work that resonates with audiences navigating cultural intersections. Zhang Xiaoli (b. 1989) and Yau Wing Fung (b. 1990) contribute pieces that connect with younger generations, bridging the generational gap.

Additional established artists include Hisao Hanafusa (b. 1937), Fung Ming Chip (b. 1951), Wang Mansheng (b. 1962), and Tai Xiangzhou (b. 1968), ensuring a diverse and enriching experience.

Be sure to experience this engaging exhibition before it closes this weekend!
