/ Les couleurs du Ch’an.Hommage à Hsiao Chin

Artist

Upon experiencing Ch’an, the eternity of the universe becomes both an origin and a destination.

Colours led by the principle of emotion, breaking through the linear order of time, returning towards an image of the world, pulses of light generated from the silence of the universe, challenging our beliefs. When our consciousness transcends our status quo, we detach from our naturality of binary opposition returning to a state of oneness. Hsiao Chin draws from his personal experience, a life lived with the challenges of triumphs and despair, from the lightness to the darkness of shadows, transforming this energy into his powerful and dynamic artistic language.

“Les Couleurs du Ch’an, Hommage a Hsaio Chin” exhibition presents 65 years of Hsiao Chin’s creative spirit. Since his co-founding of the Punto International Art Movement in 1961 to his study of Tao and Chi, his awareness of Eastern spirituality and cosmology is revealed in his artistic expression; from exploration, transformation and ascendance, captured for eternity with his masterpiece Dancing Light series painted in the 1963-1964 through to his Sun and Universal Energy works developed at later stages of his distinguished career.

“The Colours of Ch’an” is being presented at the same time as the internationally acclaimed “Les Couleurs du Zen, Peintures de Hsiao Chin" presented in Musée National des Arts Asiatiques Guimet, curated by Dr Jérôme Neutres, the Paris show reflects and enhances Hsiao Chin’s global recognition.
We thanks to the artist Hsiao Chin, the Hsiao Chin Art Foundation for their commitment and trust, co-curator Mr. Calvin Hui, the Musée Guimet for their dedication in preserving the inherited vision of Asian Art, who combined fresh perspective with scholarly research to the exhibition.
