This event has ended.

Paul Kasmin Gallery presents Tai Xiangzhou’s inaugural solo-exhibition, Celestial Tales. This exhibition will debut monochromatic ink paintings from the Chinese artist’s most recent body of work.

Collected by major museums and institutions in the U.S., such as the Brooklyn Museum and the Arthur M. Sackler Museum at Harvard University, Celestial Tales marks Tai Xiangzhou’s premier exhibition at a contemporary gallery. Tai’s latest works reinterpret traditional Chinese ink painting through the study of meteorites and reveal an increasingly more vibrant and expressive style than his previous series, Genesis, which explored these traditions through biomorphic forms.

Under the tutelage of master ink painter Liu Dan for over a decade, Tai incorporates the old master’s tradition of landscape painting with a fresh approach incorporating the philosophies and ethos of today. Exclusively using paper created with 10th century techniques and Qianglong era ink, Tai believes that “to present landscape painting that meets modern tastes, we must start from the experience of modern society – by properly accessing the living spirit of art, researching the materials, techniques, medium and modern time-space experience. In short, we should not only keep alive traditional art, but also the tradition of art.” The artist’s lively brushstrokes exude an incredible energy and style that are uniquely his own.
