China’s Changing Landscape

Contemporary Chinese Ink

Yang Jiechang

Nordiska Akvarellmuseet, Skärhamn, Sweden

Painting in Indian ink is one of the oldest and most traditional forms of Chinese art. Interest in this ancient art form – at present undergoing a renaissance – has never been stronger. Today’s youthful generation of artists seek the inspiration of their roots, follow the old techniques and experiment with them to find new modes of expression. This exhibition shows how the ancient but still vibrant patterns are reinterpreted, renewed and exploited in fresh creative contexts and techniques. The presentation includes amongst others works by Yang Jiechang.
