Metaphysical Art Gallery is pleased to present the international triple exhibition featuring the new series of works by Chiharu Nishizawa from Japan, Jang Tarng-Kuh from Taiwan, and Yee Sookyung from Korea. In keeping with realistic techniques and the spirit of humanism, Chiharu Nishizawa interprets man's destiny with his inclination towards to the secular affairs, while Jang Tarng-Kuh depicts the theater of nature. Yee Sookyung's translated ceramic sculptures by using the oriental element into the contemporary visual interpretation and presents the tension among past, present and the future. Confronting with the same lesson of life, the three artists reveal an interesting antipodal metaphysically with the different aspects of perspective.
Chiharu Nishizawa introduced his works by using ukiyo-e printmaking skill to combine with the western pop art culture and the forms of digitalized on-line game's virtual spaces. Nishizawa is famous at his sympathy for humankind by depicting the metropolitan world of lives. A long line of the crowds deduce episodes for lifetime, and stories are evolved in the hidden scenery. With the same compassion and delicate painting techniques, Nishizawa's works embodies as an alarm to human society, and shows more immense and penetrating whether in forms or connotations. Yee Sookyung conveys the memory of culture with abundant conceptual art. In her series of the ceramic sculpture, Yee Sookyung reconfigured broken ceramic pieces with golden foils into translated vases, resembling as "biomorphic mutant" sculpture. A gorgeous new life therefore is reborn, giving the artworks the peerless and overthrowing spirit and vision of the era. Jang Tarng-Kuh describes the ecology and lives by depicting the light and shadow in the depth of trees and plants, narrates soils. At the dangerous moment of "nature selects, the fittest survives" under the happy appearance, a beauty and sorrow of wild lives co-exist in the ambiguous atmosphere described calmly as well as passionately. Through the artist's sharp observation, an exiting show of play is seen, after the breeze and rain.
