Solo Exhibition. Yi-Ching Chen

"The beauty of nature's life" continues Yi-Ching's long-standing interest in the Nihonga technique of painting and showcases her approach of incorporating it into her contemporary practice. The Nihonga style emerged in Japan during the Meiji period (1868-1912) characterised by traditional artistic conventions, techniques and materials.

The new works further recall Yi-Ching’s outstanding painting style deeply rooted in her early training in Japan. In 2002, she was admitted to study at the renowned Institute of Fine Arts at the Kyoto Municipal University of Arts under Takao Yamazaki, a prominent representative of the Nitten movement.

In 2003, she was awarded the Shouhaku Museumʼs Grand Prize for her painting Kabocha. Atsushi Uemura, an eminent master of Nihonga, also recognised her immense talent, offering her a studio and the opportunity to study under his guidance after completing her Masterʼs Degree.
