This is the first solo museum show for Tu Hongtao. Focusing on landscape painting, Tu Hongtao combines Chinese and western influences to convey the sensation of a journey through natural wonders.
“Chinese painting has a set of schemas that illustrates the relationship between space and time,” according to Tu Hongtao who goes on to explain, “What I want to do is change these schemas. I want to use the fluctuation of time to represent spatial relations, as a way to re-organize the image composition. Basically I want to learn from Chinese painting to reorganize the relationship between space and time. That’s one way you can understand my process.”
