Alisan Fine Arts (Aberdeen)

Michael Cherney, Lee Chun-yi, Wang Tiande, Zhang Yu

Dec 5 – Feb 26

Empty Forest After Snow by Wang Tiande, Chinese ink with burn marks on layered rice paper, stele rubbing of Qing Dynasty, 67 x 55cm, 2017.

Brushless Ink Painting is a group exhibition featuring four internationally renowned artists whose practices revolutionise 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.
