The Call of the Tranquility: An Expression of Traditional Chinese Brush Painting

This exhibit features the works of Huangxin (Derek) Wang, Chenlin Cai, Lijun Tian, and Jennifer Yuan, will run from June 11, 2018 through January, 2019 at the Exhibit Gallery of Pearl S. Buck International.

The exhibit displays the work of four contemporary artists who continue the ancient tradition of Chinese brush painting, a unique art form that has developed over 6,000 years.

Chinese brush painting had a profound influence on the development of art in East Asia. In the 15th century, Chinese painting branched off a style, called scholastic abstraction, that was considered avant garde. Traditionally, Chinese painting used ink, colors and brushes on rice paper. Today, Chinese painting sustains its vitality through the continued transformation of art ideals and new media.
