Parkview Green Art Taipei is pleased to announce Cong Yun Feng ‘s solo exhibition ” Good Heaven and Earth” on May and will show his famous ink-artwork series ”Binary ” and tempera-creation series “Emanation of the One ”.
A Cosmos up the Sleeve—A Preliminary Survey of Cong Yun Feng’s New Works
As a Chinese contemporary artist born in the 1990s and returned to his homeland after studying abroad, Cong Yun Feng strives to surpass existing understandings of media and their limits. On the one hand, he combines traditional ink art with the digital signals of 0 and 1 to strategically create repeated layers that delineate the traditional ink motif of monumental landscape. On the other hand, he employs the Western classical painting technique of tempera to create a unique contemporary cultural tapestry woven with the splendid Middle Eastern totemic patterns and the common images found in traditional Chinese bird-and-flower paintings, rendering the two interacting and inter-referencing.
Good Heaven and Earth - Cong Yun Feng Solo Exhibition reveals a juxtaposition of dissimilar works, ingeniously creating an interesting scene of visual illusion. As viewers read into Cong’s works that are inspired by and responses to the fundamental concept of I-Ching, which dictates that Qian （heaven） and Kun （earth） create everything in the cosmos, they are simultaneously immersed in a world filled with images and layers, and consequently prompted to think about what reality really is in this digital age when anything can be possible as well as virtual.
The exhibition will start from May 26th to July 7th. The opening will be at 4pm on Sunday, May 26th and the artist will attend and share his story with every guest.
