Alisan Fine Arts is excited to present Brushless, a group exhibition featuring four internationally renowned artists whose practices revolutionize contemporary ink painting with the use of various tools and media. While brush and ink form the backbone of traditional Chinese ink painting and aesthetics, these four pioneering artists have chosen to push the boundaries of this classical practice by replacing the brush with the use of stamping, photography, incense sticks, and the artist’s own index finger. Together, they have collectively redefined and revived the ancient art form with their robust understanding and respect for the tradition, as well as their clear insights into the future trajectory of ink painting.
Artists included in this exhibition are American photographer, Michael Cherney who uses the materiality of photographic images printed on rice paper; cosmopolitan Taiwanese artist Lee Chun-yi whose approach departs from the conventional use of brushes by employing Chinese seals and ink rubbings on paper to form a semi一photographic image; avant-garde ink artist Wang Tiande while uses the brush to paint, his use of incense sticks adds an unique and ephemeral quality to his traditional landscapes and calligraphy and lastly Zhang Vu whose experimental use of his index finger as the sole tool of creation,fully explores the relationship between self - identity, time, and existence.
The continuing contribution from these four innovative artists has helped in expanding the possibilities of ink painting, serving to reveal the profound potential and contemporaneity of ink art. A series of artist video is produced in conjunction with our current group exhibition Brushless at Alisan Aberdeen. This series sheds light on the 4 internationally renowned artists' innovative creations to push the boundaries of the classical practice of ink painting and the inspiration behind their works. Include by employing Chinese seals and ink rubbings, using fingerprints, photography, and burn marks. Language: Cantonese, Putonghua and English (subtitles: Chinese/English). Duration: around 12 minutes.
