Hanart TZ Gallery presents solo show “Edge of Sea and Sky” by late Taiwanese master artist Yeh Shih-Chiang, featuring over 30 oil paintings. There will be two music receptions which will be on 25 March (Mon) and 26 March (Tue) 2019, from 6 to 8pm, at Hanart TZ Gallery.
Under the directorship of the illustrious ink painter Gao Jianfu, Yeh Shih-Chiang (1926 – 2012) was among the last class of students at the Guangzhou Municipal Junior Art College. Frustrated in the effort due to China’s civil war, Yeh redirected to Taiwan and spent the rest of his life there. Living in extreme isolation and simplicity, Yeh sought to maintain the purity of his artistic pursuit by rejecting the institutional constraints of the art world. In his final years, Yeh rejected the offer of a major exhibition by the National Museum of History due to disagreement with standard curatorial practice. His first properly curated solo show was presented posthumously to great critical acclaim by the Hong Kong Arts Centre in 2015.
