Wonderful Beauty in Wonderful Life & Paintings and Music
Excerpt from “On the ‘Wonderful Life’, Keywords from Inside and Beyond the Paintings”
Those that have seen the exhibition may wonder: Is the Wonderful Life beautiful? Why don’t I think so? I even think the depicted characters are kind of ugly!
After the success at Art Basel Hong Kong and TAIPEI DANGDAI, Liang Gallery continues to present various artists’ works in different art spaces, while here in Crossing the Seas of Ink it invites viewers, art enthusiasts and collectors in Tainan to the journey of ink and brush with a free and unrestrained spirit. The exhibition also includes the artist’s live performance of calligraphic writing, where Hsu will transform the viewers’ life stories or inner secrets into poems with his ink and brush as an interactive artistic practice.
“The letter is for the stars to pass the message that I have to force you out of my mind to get through every day…”
Write a Letter to the Stars features 13 artworks, including 11 pieces of recent creation. The artist’s clever use of light creates a dramatic tension for the paper pulp sculptures, as if bringing them from the white cute to a black-box theatre, which thus enriches the colors and material qualities of the artworks to highlight different characters.
This exhibition is about the representation of the “head” but is also not directly correlated to the “head”. When a head is detached from its body, it is no longer a part of the image connected to the human figure. Through various techniques of representation, that head and its body become a visual archive, research subject, props, merely just a contour, an empty vessel, or just a partial piece.

After Hsu Chia-Wei made his The Story of Hoping Island in 2008, he noticed the Fort Noord-Holland built in the 17th Century (Fort San Salvador in 1642) on Hoping Island, which soon raised his interest in exploring the complex network of the Dutch East India Company and how it was connected to the old city of Malacca built in 1641 and the war between Cambodia and the Dutch in 1643.

The Grand Chi is where the universe germinated from, and where the heavens, the earth, and all things have transformed from. It is a pure vital force that nourishes mankind and evokes auspicious peace and harmony.
Hsiao Chin’s universal view was developed based on Eastern calligraphy and Taoist philosophy, and while in the West, he was able to cultivate his own unique cultural substance and apply it in his abstract art.
It is Chou’s second solo exhibition at Liang Gallery, in which he continues with his exploration of the conflict caused by the human intervention in nature to develop a new dimension of time similar to the time travel; while the new works for the exhibition also touch upon the industrial history and terrain changes that Taiwan has been through.
The Gaze from the North: Kuo Hsueh-Hu and His Southern World will open on September 5 at Liang Gallery in Neihu, Taipei. The exhibition curated by WU Chao-Jen, the Assistant Professor of Department of Fine Arts at Tunghai University, features the masterpieces by KUO Hsueh-Hu (1908-2012) of his years in Taiwan and overseas, with which he was selected by the first Taiwan Art Exhibition, along with a great number of the rarely-seen flower paintings and travel paintings.
The “Truth as White – A Retrospective Exhibition of CHU Wei-Bor” is a comprehensive exhibition featuring his works of drawings from early days, oil painting on canvas, glass plate and oil paint on paper, ink on paper, woodblock prints, acrylic on fabric, paper sculpture, and the Spring Plowing series made of linen and thread from later in his career.
